Scunthorpe have confirmed former favourite Matt Sparrow is set to become Brian Laws' sixth summer signing when he joins up with the squad on Thursday morning.

The 31-year-old free agent spent 11 years at Glanford Park and will be fondly remembered for his two goals during the League One play-off final win over Millwall at Wembley in 2009.

Having since spent time at Brighton and Crawley, Sparrow returns for his second spell in North Lincolnshire and joins new signings Andy Dawson, Terry Hawkridge, Chris Iwelumo, Andy Welsh and Luke Waterfall at the club.
