WE are pleased to announce that striker Scott Vernon has joined the club on a two year deal following a short trial.
The 32 year old impressed Paul Hurst in Wednesday's friendly at Gainsborough and the Town boss has moved quickly to secure the frontman ahead of the new season, which is now just a week away.
Born in Manchester, he ironically began his career at today's opponents Oldham Athletic where he was most notable for a goal he scored in the FA Cup that knocked Premier League team Manchester City out in the third round.
He has since played for Blackpool, Colchester United, Northampton Town, Gillingham, Southend United, Aberdeen and Shrewsbury Town.
Scott will be squad number 21.
