In Memoriam: Pete Skipper

24 April 2019

Scunthorpe United is saddened to learn of the passing of former player Pete Skipper, aged 61.

He joined on loan from Hull City in February 1980 and made just one appearance for the side, as a substitute in a 5-0 away defeat at Doncaster Rovers.

Skipper made over 300 appearances in two spells with the Tigers, aiding them to two promotions in his career.

He also played for Darlington, Oldham Athletic, Walsall, Wrexham and Wigan Athletic.

The club's thoughts are with Pete's family and friends at this sad time.
