Scunthorpe United have severed their ties with veteran winger Peter Beagrie.

Iron boss Brian Laws had been waiting for the 40-year-old to make a decision on the offer of a new 12-month contract.

But, when Beagrie failed to report for the start of pre-season training on Thursday, Laws confirmed the player would no longer be with the League One side.

"We've decided to draw a line under Peter's involvement with Scunthorpe United," Laws told the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph.

"Peter has got his TV work and the football has become more of a part-time role for him which is not suitable for what we want.

"It's a sad day for the club."

The vastly experienced wide man moved to Glanford Park from Bradford City five years ago and scored 37 goals in 199 appearances for Scunthorpe.
