Swann’s son to join board

Iron Chairman Peter Swann has announced his son Christopher will be joining the Football club’s board of directors.

Swann told the Official website: “This is a further commitment to our long term interest and development of Scunthorpe Utd, giving the club longevity and also more importantly, a younger and different view for the boardroom.

“Christopher has recently graduated from Nottingham University with a degree in Economics and will be one of the youngest Directors in the Football League.

“He has a passion and wealth of football knowledge for a 21 year old, but not only that he can keep us “ Oldies” in touch with the ever expanding and developing social media world and utilise this to represent the younger section of supporters, who in reality are the future of this football club.”
