More about shirts….

With many thanks to John from the Iron Trust, a supporters group for Scunthorpe United, for the superb donation from the members and passed on to me by John this weekend.

There are 9 more Scunthorpe shirts, 18 Liverpool, 5 England, plus some from Barcelona, Bayern Munich & Belgium. There are a few pairs of shorts, plus 4 small childrens size tops. See the attached photos for samples.

There are some football shirt collectors associated with the Iron, in particular Simon and Glenys, who are helping me sell as many of these shirts as they can, for as much as they can, all proceeds to be donated to this project.

More donations of potentially valuable shirts are promised. Any which are unsold by mid-september will be sent to Pakati, along with the shirts from the club and those from some Iron fans I know.

These are just a few of the donations for sale. I am advised by the collectors there is a good market for them all, and it is likely to raise a few hundred pounds towards the project, a total which will double thanks to the promise made by Scunthorpe United chairman, Mr Swann.

I was a Maths teacher for 2 years, the Acting Head for the last 8 months there.
