DISABILITY SIDE ENJOY IRON EXPERIENCE

4 May 2016

Scunthorpe United Disability FC enjoyed their first taste of the first team in action when we hosted Bury a fortnight ago.

Prize money won by an unnamed individual in the half time draw was donated back to the club to be used for the benefits of a selected community group.

On receiving the money, Scunthorpe United Community Sports and Education Trust opted to fund the use of the Legends Lounge, allowing both the under-16 and adult squads invited to spectate on the 2-1 victory for the Iron in comfort.

Disability officer Matt Robinson said: "For many of the young players it was the first time they had seen a live football match and without the donation this would not have been possible.

"Words cannot describe what a wonderful gesture it was from the supporter to donate this money to enable our disability footballers to come and watch the Iron. It was an experience the players will never forget.

"I'd also like to give massive thanks to Sean McAllister and Jamie Ness for coming into the Legends Lounge before the game."
