It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Alan Edgar this week.Alan was the landlord of the Honest Lawyer pub in town, and he truly made it a fans pub.
Without his encouragement, the popular Flag Day which has taken place over the last few years celebrating the Iron would never have been what it became.
Also if it wasn't for Alan, the many supporters' clubs from around the world, not just England, would never have had a hub to visit - making following the Iron such an inclusive thing. He not only welcomed home fans, he welcomed away fans too.
A truly remarkable man who will be sadly missed.
