Rory enjoys behind the scenes tour ahead of Northampton encounter

19 February 2018

Young Iron fan Rory was treated to a behind-the-scenes experience ahead of Saturday's 2-2 draw against Northampton

The seven-year-old enjoyed a 50-minute long tour saw the supporter visit the executive areas of the stadium, while also visiting the media areas, legends lounge, Directors Box and press room before visiting the playing staff's area.

With visits to the referee's room and the boot room complete, there was a final stop in the home dressing room with kick-off against Northampton Town around 100 minutes away. The players took time to pose for photographs in that time before he was presented a signed team photo as a memento for his day.

Rory was also invited back onto the pitch with other young supporters and the mascots to take part in a pre-match penalty shoot-out.

After the experience, mum Tamara said: "I couldn't think of a better way to spend time with my boy. We look forward to Saturday's so much. Today was amazing. James and Corey made so much effort with Rory and didn't rush through anything with all his questions. It was amazing."
