Junior Iron Club member Ollie Chedzoy enjoyed a behind-the-scenes mascot experience when Scunthorpe faced Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.
The young supporter went down in the club's records as the first-ever winner of our brand-new Junior Iron Club, as he was randomly selected to receive the prize out of all the members.
He was able to see otherwise restricted areas of the Stadium of Light with the Black Cats before leading United out with captain Lee Novak ahead of kick-off shortly before 3pm.
After the experience, Ollie's mum Michelle said: "We would just like to thank you for Ollie's fantastic day - a day he will never forget. Also, a thank you to all the players on our behalf with a special mention to Lee Novak. He looked after Ollie and made his day less nerve-racking for him."
