SHRIMPS winger Mark Duffy has signed for Championship side Scunthorpe United for an undisclosed fee.

Duffy, signed from Southport two years ago, has signed a deal with the Iron that lasts until 2013.

Shrimps boss Sammy McIlroy told the club website: “We spotted Mark’s talent a long time ago and that is why we wanted him so badly.

“Since coming here he has developed even further and has a good future in the game. I am sorry to see him go but delighted he has been given the chance to play at a higher level and he leaves with our best wishes.”

Duffy follows in the footsteps of another Shrimps winger Garry Thompson, who signed for Scunthorpe from Morecambe in May 2008.
