Scott Laird: Scunthorpe United sign Preston North End defender
Scunthorpe United have signed Preston North End defender Scott Laird on a three-year deal.
Laird made 42 appearances for the Deepdale side in 2014-15 as they won promotion to the Championship through the play-offs.
He turned down a new deal with Preston to join League One Scunthorpe.
The former Stevenage man told the club website: "I've been lucky in my career to have experienced promotions and have been successful from the Conference, League Two and now League One to the Championship.
"I feel I can bring a lot of know-how and hopefully help a lot of players who are coming to the club who have not necessarily done it and get Scunthorpe back to the Championship."
