Oliver Norwood is hoping his loan spell at Scunthorpe can help him break into United’s first team and is using a team mate as inspiration.

Norwood went on loan to Carlisle last season making 6 appearances and the reserve team player is now on loan at Glanford Park with United faces Sam Johnstone and Nicky Ajose.

With 15 games under his belt, Norwood is getting a chance to play first team football and display his talent as he told Sky Sports,

“It has been a dream since I was six or seven years old to play in United’s first team and I just have to work hard and put in the extra yards to get there.

“I am really enjoying it at Scunthorpe. I have started every game since I have been here and it is about getting games coming out on loan and I have done well to play every game.”

Norwood realises it will be hard work though and takes heart from Tom Cleverley who went on a similar journey before breaking into United’s first team,

“When Tom was younger you could always see he was going to be a good player and he has done extra stuff off the pitch and he has now made himself a great midfield player.

“It all started in League One for him and he’s worked hard to get to where he is and there is no reason why, if I put the work in, that I couldn’t hopefully do the same.”

  1. This isn’t actually satire. The author along with several of you appear to not understand what true satire is. If the author wanted to truly be satirical, he would have taken the side of the AZ lawmakers, supporting his position by highlighting (here comes the satire part [listen close author]) the idiocy and stupidity of the laws. By taking the side of AZ and playing devils advocate, the author would be able to shed light on the laws that smack of closet racism and white supremacy. Instead he just makes native Americans sound bad and puts up a made up story. All the while failing miserably at the satire he claims to write…
