Luer hoping for games & goals with Iron


Hull City striker Greg Luer says he is looking forward to getting started with Scunthorpe, after penning a one month loan deal at Glanford Park. exclusively revealed that the club were close to securing the services of the 21-year-old striker last night and the move was finalised this morning.

“I’ve heard a few rumours about going out on loan for a couple of months,” Luer told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.

“But our Daws (Michel Dawson) spoke to this Daws (Iron caretaker-boss Andy Dawson) about it and I’ve come on board.

“Hull wanted to keep me at the start of the transfer window because of the injuries they were carrying. If anyone else had got an injury, I’d have been in the squad.

Luer joined the Tigers 12 months ago from Isthmian League outfit Burgess Hill Town and scored two goals in the League Cup this term for his parent club.

“I got a chance in the League Cup because we had injuries and the squad was getting thinner.

“I took a couple chances, but I could quite easily have missed them and been back in the under-21s. It’s all about taking chances.

“I’ve enjoyed playing for the development squad, but it doesn’t prepare you for men’s football. It’s not really getting you ready for a League One or Championship team.

“Scoring a goal in the first-team is literally the best feeling. I didn’t think it was going to happen at Hull – I didn’t think I’d get a chance. But the fact I did, took my chance and scored, it’s an amazing feeling. I’d love to do that again here.”

Luer will be available for the Iron’s game against Southend on Saturday, with the loan lasting until 8 March.
