Dennis Hobson hopes to add another new face to Scunthorpe United board in future
NEW Scunthorpe United director Dennis Hobson is already planning for the future.
The Sheffield boxing promoter's position on the Iron board was confirmed yesterday and he has revealed more new faces could join him further down the line.
Hobson has one person in particular in mind, but any further additions are unlikely to happen before the summer and would only go through with the board's approval.
"I don't want to dwell on it too much," Hobson told the Telegraph.

"I've got some person in mind who I think can make a difference.
"He's very driven and has got a bit of style about him. He's a little bit younger than me but I can bounce off him as well and I'm sure the board will too.
"Any person who gets involved will have their blessing.
"It will be people who I think will definitely make a difference at the club and assist the people already there."
That includes working with the Iron Trust which was launched last summer with the aim of giving supporters a greater say in the way the club is run.
Hobson acknowledged the fans' importance to United and said he is prepared to listen to their views.
"I don't know much about it (the Iron Trust), to be honest but I'm open minded," he explained.
"I'm not one of those people who's a control freak, I'm quite democratic.
"I've got a number of businesses and the people I work with will tell you I rarely say they are people who work for me – they are people who work with me. I value everyone's opinion.
"That's what you do with any supporters' trust.
"You've got to listen to them, they are on the terraces. They are supporters, you've got to value their opinion.
"We'll see if we can do something between us to help move the club
"I'm a team player. It's not just about me, it's about the club.
"It's their club, it's the supporters' club. I'm going to become a supporter and hopefully help us achieve more."
