JIC Feature Fan: Lewis French

22 April 2020

We look back through our featured Junior Iron Club members this season, with each selected participant answering questions for the matchday programme before getting an opportunity to interview an Iron player.

Lewis was our seventh member to get the chance to take part, with the then-10-year-old featured in the new-look Junior Iron Mini Mag for our younger supporters. He also got the opportunity to interview Levi Sutton, asking him his choice of questions.

This interview was featured in our programme when we faced Northampton Town back in October.

Here's his interview, plus Levi Sutton's answers...

Age? Ten

What's been the best part of being a JIC member? The best thing part of the Junior Iron Club is getting to do things like this (be a feature fan and ball delivery).

How long have you been supporting the Iron? I have supported Scunthorpe for four years.

Tell us about your first game. My first game was against Bury when Scunthorpe won 3-2.

Who is your favourite Scunthorpe United player of all time? Duane Holmes

Who is your favourite current Scunthorpe United player? Ryan Colclough

Tell us your favourite parts of a matchday… When Scunny score!

Who do you come to games with? I come to games with my dad (Kevin), my dad’s friend Tom and my friend Evan.

Do you play football and if so, who for and what position do you play? I play for Scotter Colts Under-11s and I like playing on the left wing.

Lewis interviews Levi Sutton…

If you could play for any team in the English leagues, who would it be? I’d play for Manchester United because I support them.

What’s the proudest achievement of your career so far? That would probably be when I scored my first professional league goal for the club back in January against Coventry City. It was in front of all of my family, so it was a really proud moment. 

How old was you when you signed your first professional contract? I was 18.
