Our Grassroots Football Day was a big success at the weekend, with around 60 local junior football teams attending to add around 1,000 to the gate.
The majority of the local teams, who play in the Caparo League, Jack Kalson League and Lincolnshire Girls league, were situated in the AMS Stand with a couple of other groups also located in the Family Area of the SPB Stand and also the Clugston Stand.
We had around 1,000 supporters in the AMS Stand, a further 40 in the Family Area and another 40 in the Clugston Stand all taking advantage of our special offer recognising the work that goes into local junior football.
A massive thank you goes to all those teams, the team managers, players, representatives and parents for supporting the initiative and supporting the Iron against Fleetwood Town.
We had four prizes on offer in our free prize draw, with manager Graham Alexander randomly selecting the winners of the competition. We attached a number to each team and put the parameters into a random number generator to get the results of the competition.
