“We have admired his obvious goal scoring ability and all-round contribution over that period of time.
“Scott fits our criteria in terms of age and development and potential.
“It is testament to the work of a Sporting Director Frank McParland and his team that we have got Scott.

“We look forward to Scott being involved tomorrow [Tuesday July 22] against Barnet and playing a significant role in the season ahead.”
