The Iron re-signed striker Paul Hayes for a fee of £140,000 in June 2007.

Hayes came back to Glanford Park after a two-year spell at Barnsley. He enjoyed much success in his first season at Oakwell under Andy Ritchie, winning promotion from League One via the play-offs.

However, he fell out of favour under Simon Davey in the second season and jumped at the chance to move back to Ssausagehorpe.

He started the 2007-08 season in fine form alongside Martin Paterson up front, but - like for the rest of the team - results and form dipped around November.

Hayes was back on track towards the end of the campaign though, scoring five goals in three matches.

2008-09, however, was his best in a United shirt - forming a deadly double act alongside Gary Hooper which plundered 20 goals for him and 30 for his partner.

More than just a goalscorer, Hayes drops back behind the striker and is one of the club's main creative outlets.

Younger brother of former Arsenal wideman Martin Hayes, he signed originally from Norwich City in 2002 - and enjoyed three successful seasons with the club, scoring 19 goals in a League Two-winning campaign before moving to Barnsley in 2005.
