JIC Feature Fan: Adem Dilsiz

27 March 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.

Adem Dilsiz was our fifth 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 defender Rory McArdle, asking him his choice of questions.

This interview was featured in our programme when we faced Oldham Athletic back in September.

Here's his interview, plus Rory McArdle's answers...

Age? Ten
What's been the best part of being a JIC member? I love the chance to get to meet all of the players being a JIC member.
How long have you been supporting the Iron? I have supported the Iron all of my life.
Tell us about your first game. My first game was when I was just nine months old when I went to watch Scunthorpe play Manchester City in January 2010.
Who is your favourite Scunthorpe United player of all time? My favourite Scunthorpe player of all time is Paddy Madden.
Who is your favourite current Scunthorpe United player? My favourite player in the squad now is George Miller.
Tell us your favourite parts of a matchday… Cheering on the boys from the terrace when we score!
Who do you come to games with? I come to games with my mum and big brother Harry.
Do you play football and if so, who for and what position do you play? I play for Park Tigers Under-11s. I play up front as a striker.

Adem interviews Rory McArdle…

How long have you played football professionally? I’ve played football professionally since I was offered my first contract at 18-years-old, which was 14 years ago.

Do you support a football team? If so who? Yes, I support Sheffield Wednesday.

Did you do well at school? Yes, I did well at school and passed all of my GCSEs and got 10.5 A*-Cs. The half, I think was RE, as back then it wasn’t a full qualification. I think I got one A*s, five Bs and four Cs.

Where did you go on holiday this year? I went to Portugal and Cyprus on holiday this year.

What do you like to do on a day off? On days off, I enjoy either going for a game of golf or going out with the kids somewhere on a day out.

What sort of car do you drive? I drive a Volkswagen Golf.
