Swann: We’ll be contenders

Peter Swann has written a Christmas message to Iron fans.

I would like to wish all our fans a wonderful Christmas and hope that you have a great time with your families and friends over this festive period. It has been an interesting few weeks, but the management and players have responded superbly and they have put us in a great position in the league.

Russ and Tony must be congratulated on a stirling effort and one which has seen the Iron gain 13 from 15 points. The matches over these weeks come thick and fast and we hope that our momentum can keep us in the mix for the New Year push.

Nothing is won or lost in the league at Christmas, but teams will begin to establish themselves as contenders and Scunthorpe will be one of those teams.

Our squad of players have worked hard and the atmosphere is superb and a special mention must go to the players who are on the bench waiting for their chance, their attitude is excellent, thank you. So enjoy and we will see you on Boxing Day at Bury.

Up the Iron.
