Andy Dawson has rejoined Scunthorpe United after his release last week by City.
The Tigers legend, a veteran of ten years, four divisions and more than 300 senior games at the Circle, has signed a one-year deal with the Iron with an option on a further year. He will combine playing for the League Two side with coaching.
Dawson, who is 34, established himself at Scunthorpe during Brian Laws’ first spell in charge in the late 90s after leaving Nottingham Forest as a teenager, and was a popular and consistent figure at Glanford Park until 2003 when he joined City on a free transfer.
His testimonial season with the Tigers will culminate in a money-spinning friendly against an as-yet-unannounced top side at the Circle later this summer, prior to the start of the new season for both City and his new club.
