SCUNTHORPE United have handed a trial to former York City forward Harry Bunn.

Bunn was one of 13 players not to be offered a new contract by York in May as manager Steve Watson reshaped his squad ahead of the 2021/22 season, which begins next month.

The decision seems to have rested on balancing Bunn's wages - thought to be one of the highest in last season's squad - with his propensity towards injury.

And Watson revealed that Bunn, as well Owen Gamble and Reon Potts, had been invited to keep training with the club, with a view to earning new deals.

However it appears as if Bunn may be lining up for SkyBet League Two side Scunthorpe this season after being taken on trial by the Iron.

The 28-year-old joined York last summer after spending plenty of his career in the Football League.

After leaving hometown club Manchester City, the forward joined Huddersfield Town, whom he played almost 100 times for, including in their Championship play-off winning side, before spells at Bury, Southend United and Kilmarnock.
