Iron youngster Hornshaw signs first professional deal

Scunthorpe have announced the news that youth player George Hornshaw has signed a professional deal with the club.

The 18-year-old has penned a one-year deal with United, with the club having the option to extend that by a further 12 months next summer.

Hornshaw joined the Iron in November 2011 whilst at Under-12 level, having been spotted playing for a side in Hull against Scunthorpe.

Good luck next season, George. #UTI
