Club statement: Sheldon Report

28 May 2021

Scunthorpe United Football Club acknowledges the contents of the Sheldon Report and its Annexes.

The Board, along with everyone at Scunthorpe United, are committed to upholding the highest possible standards of safeguarding for all at our club.

Our thoughts are with the survivors and their families, and we recognise and admire the great bravery they have shown in coming forward.

Our designated Safeguarding Officer is Pete Wallace, who can be contacted at or on 01724 747683.

If any person should feel that they have been the victim of any type of abuse then we would implore them to get in touch with the Police or call the confidential 24 hour NSPCC helpline (0800 023 2642), that has been set up in conjunction with the FA immediately to register their concerns with trained professionals. This dedicated helpline has been commissioned by the FA and manned by experienced NSPCC officials specifically to give support and guidance for adults who were victims of abuse in childhood within the football industry.

NSPCC helpline: 0800 023 2642.
