Home shirts gifted to two Iron fans

21 February 2019

Two Iron supporters left the club this afternoon with a home shirt each, after being gifted them by United chairman Peter Swann.

The pair, Richard and Peter (who are residents of Manor House in Alkborough), came down to the club to purchase tickets for this weekend's encounter against Doncaster Rovers.

While at Glanford Park, they took in some of the morning training session and spotted the arrival of the chairman, swiftly eager to meet him. After learning that the duo chose to travel to support the Iron at Gillingham last weekend over purchasing a home shirt due to money constraints, he was more than happy to provide them with a jersey each.

Carer at Manor House, Louis Borrill, said: "We have some current service users who come watch the games home and away already and we’d like to increase this number. Our plans are to get our service users more in to sport. 

"One of our service users had his birthday at Scunthorpe United and had a meal, went on the pitch, met the players and got a signed shirt. Many of our service users can’t afford to buy a shirt, so they have bought plain white shirts to get autographs."

Both Richard and Peter said: "It's made our day and it was a lovely suprise."
