Striker Paddy Madden has left Huish Park to join Sky Bet League Two side Scunthorpe United.

The 23-year-old has signed at two-and-a-half-year contract with the Iron and joins for an undisclosed fee.


Madden joined the Glovers in October 2012 on loan from Carlisle United before making his move to Somerset permanent in January 2013.

During his spell with the club Paddy made 44 appearances, scoring a total of 23 goals, including the memorable opening goal at Wembley in the League One Play Off Final against Brentford.

Manager Gary Johnson said: "I am as disappointed as anyone else that things haven’t worked out this season for Paddy for whatever reason. These things happen in football and we all move on.

"I would like to thank Paddy for his service to our football club and we all wish him well for the future."
