Since 2016, we have welcomed over 100 local junior grassroots groups to enjoy our pre-match behind-the-scenes experiences which have included pre-match tours, flag bearing and our brand new big flag package.
We have also conducted a number of individual pre-match behind-the-scenes tours and, in partnership with other areas of the club such as the SUFC Trust and Study Parks, been able to offer other experiences.
Below are just some of the testimonials we have received over this period...
Thank you so much. I have had loads of feedback from the parents, thanking me and wishing to pass on their thanks to the club and team for their friendliness and being so welcoming. The players (of Scotter) had been talking about it all evening to their mums and dads.
Phil Lowry, Scotter Juniors U9s
Superb. All the kids, coaches and parents loved it, thanks very much. (It) was well organised and (we were) very well looked after.
Paul Glover, Bottesford Town U8s
All the boys had a great time, thank you so much for allowing the boys to be part of the game.
Matthew Baxter, Bottesford Town BCS U9s
On behalf of the parents of the Messingham Juniors Under-8s team, please may I extend our heartfelt thanks to you for the opportunity for our team to be flag bearers at the match versus Plymouth Argyle. All the kids were so excited to be involved and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is so good to see the club working with the local grassroots team in this way, nurturing the interest of the next generation of supporters.
Sandra Byrne, Messingham Juniors U8s
The boys thoroughly enjoyed their experience of being flag bearers, which was a great way to cap a good season. We thank everyone at the Iron for being so welcoming.
Chris Sumpter, Scotter Colts U9s
What a great day we had on Saturday, thank you for organising the stadium tour and flag bearing. Everybody who attended enjoyed it from start to finish and the weather didn’t spoil the day. Saturday saw 14 players turn up and one player's grandad who has been to most home games for over 43 years joined the players to for fill a lifelong dream to see behind-the-scenes as he’s only ever seen things from the terraces. Once again from everybody who turned up on the day a big thank you to all associated at Scunthorpe United from all associated with our club.
Shaun Drury, Barton United Vipers U12s
We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Glanford Park, thanks very much for all your hospitality from your team and the players. He (Lewis) didn’t believe me when I first told him we were having a tour, it certainly will be a day he will remember for a long time to come.
Andrew - dad of Lewis, who enjoyed a first-time tour
Thank you James Moody and all the staff and players at Scunthorpe United for your warm hospitality. Our little team certainly enjoyed it. (There are) so many great photos. What an amazing day. Great memories made and just the start of this little journey we're going on as a team together!
Danny Heron, Appleby Frodingham Saints U7s
We had an absolutely fantastic day. The players, management and staff were all great with the lads and really patient. It was such a great opportunity. Parents have been thanking us for the opportunity that their children had so this is extended to yourselves.

Thanks goes to everyone involved, they will talk about this forever!
