Scunthorpe United supporters putting their Trust in Sir Ian Botham
Sporting legend Sir Ian Botham has been approached to get involved with Scunthorpe United supporters' group the Iron Trust.
Sir Ian, in addition to being England cricket captain and his country's star all-rounder in the 1980s, lived at Epworth and trained and played for Scunthorpe United, including some first team appearances.
The Iron Trust - @IronTrust - sent a tweet to Sir Ian - @BeefyBotham - yesterday, asking: "Beefy, would you be interested in joining fan's group Iron Trust as honorary member? Working to help club."
Sir Ian often comments about Scunthorpe United on Twitter and has fond memories of his time with the team.
Now a very successful broadcaster and renowned charity fundraiser, he returned to the town last March, with Lady Botham, to officially open the new Ironstone Centre medical facility.
