Scunthorpe United will benefit from 'experience and versatility' of Chris Sedgewick
Winger Chris Sedgewick brings 'experience and versatility' to Scunthorpe United's ranks after agreeing to join the club on a non-contract basis.
The former Rotherham United and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder signed for the Iron in the short-term last Friday, after spending a week training with the rest of the squad.
On Saturday he was on the bench during the 1-0 win at Shrewsbury Town, coming on in injury-time to help United close out the game.
At 32, and having made more than 400 league appearances, Sedgewick's availability - he was released by the Owls at the start of the summer - made his inclusion a no-brainer for manager Alan Knill – who has watched the Yorkshireman's career progress at close hand.

"I've known Sedge since he was 16 or 17," Knill told the Telegraph.
"I was a player and then a coach at Rotherham when he was just coming through.
"He gives us experience and versatility. He can play left wing, right wing and even in the middle.
"The deal that we've agreed is unbelievable for a player of his experience and knowledge. We think he's going to make us better.
"He came in last Thursday because I know him and I'd said to him that he needed somewhere to train.
"He has a lot of quality when it comes to delivering the ball into the box and he brings us size and power too.
"Financially it's a deal that suits everybody."
