Saturday’s fixture against Salford City will be designated to remembering legendary goalkeeper Ray Clemence MBE, who started his professional career with the Iron and was a Vice President.
Almost one year on from his passing we will use this fixture as a chance for supporters to come together in the stadium to celebrate Ray’s life and achievements in the game, having started as a professional with Scunthorpe United back in 1965.
The club have been granted permission to wear a special edition version of the current home goalkeeper shirt which will feature a sublimated signature, embroidery and have no sponsors.
Ray, who went on to play for Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and England in a historic career, sadly died from prostate cancer in November last year after a long fight with the disease and the club will be supporting the charity at this fixture with awareness messages, a bucket collection before the game and the auction of the match-worn shirt after the game.
Further to this, the club have a limited-edition version of the shirt that will be available to buy from the club shop or online at sufcshop.com from 10am on Tuesday morning, with all profits from the sale of these special edition shirts being donated to Prostate Cancer UK (adults £45, juniors £39).
A traditional green colour with buttons and a collar, the design has been based on shirts back from when Ray began his incredible football career playing for the Iron back in the 1960’s.
Further details will be confirmed ahead of the game but you can buy a special edition shirt in advance of the game online at sufcshop.com or in person from the club shop at the stadium.
