British Steel family day takes place at Glanford Park

The children of British Steel employees helped fly the flag for the company at Scunthorpe United's latest match.

On Saturday, The Iron made the game against Shrewsbury their British Steel family day.

Our flags were flying prouder than ever as the teams came out - surrounded by children whose families work at British Steel in Scunthorpe.

All the youngsters had taken part in our 'Design a shirt' competition and their prizes ranged from being matchday mascots to British Steel flag bearers.

It looked like everyone had great fun and although The Iron lost 1-0 to Shrewsbury, they are still firmly in the promotion race.

British Steel has formed a community partnership with Scunthorpe United and we are working together on a number of projects. Our steel will go into The Iron's new ground while our logo appears on their shirts.

Up The Iron!
