Scunthorpe United have appointed former England cricketer Sir Ian Botham as their new club president.

Botham made 11 appearances for Scunthorpe between 1980 and 1985.

He is the club’s first president since John Godfrey, who died in 2015.

“We spoke as a board and thought Sir Ian would make an ideal ambassador for us,” said chairman Peter Swann.
