Trust member Byrne makes Iron return

The Iron Trust would like to welcome Cliff Byrne back to Glanford Park, after the former club captain rejoined on loan on Thursday September 12.

Cliff is an honorary member of the Iron Trust and helped get us going at the start of the 2012/13 season, even though he had then left the club.

The Trust launched at his benefit match, which saw a host of club greats return to Glanford Park for an exhibition match.

We asked him to help us get off the ground because of his unwavering commitment to the club and indefatigable spirit – traits we aspire to emulate.

He made 332 competitive appearances for the club before moving to Oldham, for whom he has played 43 times, in the summer of 2012.

His return to the club makes him the first Trust member to be part of the club’s first-team playing staff, having become the first member to score in a competitive match at Glanford Park last season when he netted for the Latics against the Iron.
