Iron legend Cliff set for testimonial match
Scunthorpe United legend Cliff Byrne, a long-standing supporter of Kick It Out, has been handed a testimonial by his former club.
The 30-year-old Irishman, who has spent the last nine years with the Iron, departed Glanford Park this summer.
Cliff, who started his career at Sunderland, would have qualified for a testimonial match in 2013 and although he will fall short, the club are keen to recognise his commitment and desire throughout his time with them.
The benefit match, which will see the Scunthorpe United League One play-off winning side from 2009 go up against a Scunthorpe United XI from Cliff’s time at the club, is taking place at Glanford Park on Sunday 29 July.
Kicking off at 3pm, ticket prices for the match are £10 adults, £5 seniors and under 16’s, and £2 under 10’s.
