ANYON: THE 12TH MAN IS SO IMPORTANT

22 May 2015

It was confirmed last week that goalkeeper Joe Anyon had signed a new two year deal with the club.

Anyon was keen to praise the 12th Man initiative, and urged United fans to get on board.

“The more the fans can get behind the team, and the more they can buy into it, the better," he told The Iron Player.

Anyon was keen to push the importance of the fans, and the effect they can have on the Scunthorpe players when at full voice.

“When you’re out on the pitch, or watching on, you do soak up the atmosphere – and the bigger the crowd the better it is, and that’s what we need," he stated.

"We need them there behind us from start to finish, and really encouraging us on.”

The 12th Man package has many exciting exclusives available to Iron fans renewing their season tickets.

Members will be able to choose their seat for the forthcoming season, as well as access to every home league game, and priority for both home and away cup ties.

On entering the stadium, members will be able to collect their complementary matchday programme, and will also gain access to an exclusive pre-match insight from Mark Robins.

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.

One of the key incentives would be the chance for members to choose their seat for the new stadium, which United are hoping to move into for the 2016/17 season.

Scunthorpe will be hoping to leave the Glanford Park era on a high, and Anyon is setting his sights on a push at the right end of the League One table.

He stated: “We’ve said we want to be there or there abouts and pushing for promotion. Promotion would be the cherry on the cake.”

In the Championship years, Glanford Park was deemed a fortress, as the home form was key to survival in the 2009/10 season, and Anyon is keen to get that feel back next season.

He concluded: “Being at home, it should be a fortress. Teams should come here knowing it’s going to be noisy, it’s going to be loud, and the fans really get behind the team here so they can actively be the 12th Man."
