He was signed a year extension on 8 June 2010, despite not making an appearance for Scunthorpe.[2] He made his debut during the 2010–11 season, on 22 September against Manchester United in the League Cup, coming on for Chris Dagnall.[3] He made his league debut on 28 December 2010, in a 2–0 win over Burnley.[4]

In March 2012 Godden joined Gainsborough Trinity on an initial one-month loan.[5] In August 2012 he re-joined Trinity on a 6-month loan.
