Iron legends back for Team Verrico match

Iron legends back for Team Verrico match

Several former Iron stars will take part in a charity match to raise funds for the Team Verrico appeal.

Trust honorary members Paul Musselwhite and Mark Jackson will be joined by Paul Harsley, Nathan Stanton, Lee Ridley, Cleveland Taylor and more for the game at Bottesford Town’s Birch Park ground on Thursday April 24, with a 6.30pm kick-off.

The match is being organised by Glyn Sparks, most recognisable on matchdays at Glanford Park as the Scunny Bunny but also a board member of the Iron Trust.

He said: “We are asking a minimum donation of £1 to see some of our past favourite players.

“Also, after the match we will have a number of items going into an auction at the club bar where everybody is welcome. All money raised on the night will go to Team Verrico.

“To raise money for this charity I am also running the Manchester Marathon, North Lincolnshire Half Marathon and Humber Bridge Half Marathon – all as the Scunny Bunny.”
