When you’ve been a supporter of the Iron for as many years as Brian Lewis has, you’re bound to have seen plenty of ups and downs, and seen hundreds of players come and go too.He told us all about his experiences following United after signing up to be part of the 12th Man campaign.
“I’ve supported Scunthorpe since 1951, which is a long while! So we’ve had our ups and downs in that time," he said.
Brian has just signed up to be a part of the 12th Man initiative, and he’s been impressed with what the club has to offer:
“It looks really promising on paper with regards to what has been proposed," he stated.
The 12th Man campaign is new for this coming season, and offers members exclusives that have never been seen before at the football club.
Members will receive a free matchday programme to every league home match, while they will also receive an exclusive email from manager Mark Robins.
Access to all home league games, and priority tickets for cup games are included.
The 12th Man private Twitter account has also been created to give members access to the Iron’s latest news before it goes out to the general public, on our official account.
Not forgetting one of the biggest incentives to sign up – the chance to pick your seat ready for the move into the new stadium at the start of the 2016/17 season.
When asked which games in particular Brian is looking forward to attending next season, he said: “Blackpool is always a good game, and as many of the local games too. I get to all of the home games, and at least half of the away games.”
He also remembers some of the greats he has seen play during the 64 years he has followed the club:
He said: “I still think back about some of the great players we’ve had over the years. Barrie Thomas, Peter Beagrie – players like that.”
Asked where he believes the club should be looking to strengthen in the summer, Brian told us: “With Marcus Williams going we need to strengthen in the full backs position, maybe an attacking midfielder too.
"Hakeeb Adelakun is one who showed a lot of progress towards the end of last season, he’s one that has a good chance of coming on if he keeps progressing as he is doing. He should have a good season this year.”
