JIC Feature Fan: Mason Sargeant

30 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.

Mason was our sixth member to get the chance to take part, with the then-six-year-old featured in the new-look Junior Iron Mini Mag for our younger supporters. He also got the opportunity to interview forward Abo Eisa, asking him his choice of questions.

This interview was featured in our programme when we faced Bradford City back in September.

Here's his interview, plus Abo Eisa's answers...
