We would like to welcome everyone associated with Scunthorpe United including its members and board of directors of ‘Iron Trust’. The Iron Trust celebrated its 11th birthday in April this year and have been instrumental in fan engagement at Glanford Park since their formation in 2012. We hope you enjoy your visit to Victory Park this afternoon.
Membership continues to rise
We are just 12 members short of reaching our first target of the season. Our minimum target for members this season was to recruit 100 supporters to sign up, that’s just 10% of our average attendance which currently stands at 938. Here’s a snapshot of a few questions we get asked about membership.
How much does it cost? £10 per year, or £5 per month to be a ‘Super Fan’
How do I register? On our website, at Trust HQ on matchdays, or speak with a Trust board member – Look out for our lanyards to identify us.
Do I need to do anything else? You can be as active or inactive as you like. We are always looking for volunteers but if you can’t commit the time, your membership is commitment enough.
Pledge Scheme 2023-24
Every penny raised from the Pledge Scheme this season will go directly into our newly renamed ‘Magpies Fund’ - A fund that the members have control over. This scheme has raised thousands for various projects over the years and can be a fun way to donate money towards the Trust and our projects. You can go down the usual route of paying per goal, per clean sheet or something a bit more obscure such as per ball out of the ground? Per spectator catch? The choice is entirely yours.

Walk to the seaside – Final plea
4 weeks ago, Julian (Trust Chair) and Darren (Chorley FC Community Foundation Chair) walked from Duke Street to Haig Avenue for our fixture against Southport. The Local Giving page is still active for a few more days. The current overall total stands at £369.50 with the money being split equally between Magpies Trust, Chorley FC Community Foundation and Derian House Children’s Hospice - https://localgiving.org/fundraising/walk-to-the-seaside/
There are plenty of other projects that you can get involved with that support the Trust and they include;
- 50/50 Half time draw – The more you buy, the bigger the prize! There are 3 cash prizes up for grab during half time.
- Golden Goals – As popular now as it was when it was first introduced onto the Victory Park terrace over 20 years ago. For just £1 per ticket you could bag yourself £30 when that first goal goes in.
All income we receive through these projects goes back into the Trust and ultimately will help us achieve our goals of helping the Club and improving the supporter experience at Victory Park.
Our monthly meeting was held in the social club at Victory Park a couple of weeks ago where we welcomed Andy Preece as our special guest. Read the full transcript on our website along with this month's newsletter – Back for 2023/24!
