The Iron completed the signing of striker Gary Hooper in July 2008 and he had an amazing first season at Glanford Park - scoring 30 goals to help his side win promotion to the Championship.
He came close to breaking Billy Sharp's record of 32 in a season, and also scored at Wembley in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Aged 20, the young marksman signed a three-year deal to join United in a £125,000 deal, which could eventually rise to £175,000.
Hooper began his career with Grays Athletic, making his debut at the age of 15 and then helping them win promotion into the Conference South, scoring 12 goals in 2004-05.
He notched on eight occasions the following season before joining Southend on trial in July 2006.
Gary went on to make 32 appearances for the Shrimpers, mostly as a substitute, scoring two goals in the Championship for Steve Tilson's side.
He had an enjoyable loan spell at Leyton Orient in 2007, scoring two goals in four games.
Hooper then had a prolific loan spell at Hereford United last season, scoring 11 goals in 19 appearances and helping the Bulls win promotion from League Two.
