A Conversation for The Irish Iron - Scunthorpe United Football Fans from Ireland
Dr. Rjinswand Started conversation Jan 14, 2003
My grandparents were from donegal but i am a true scunthonian through and through. Born in the Scunthorpe general, baptised in holy souls, pissed in the lincoln imp (the most happening pub around)

So are you a regular Iron supporter (Irish or otherwise)?
Good Scunthonian credentials there by the way. There's a few of us around here. I may not have been born there and I left at the first opportunity but my father worked at the Scunthorpe General and I was confirmed at and a regular attendee at Holy Souls in those days.
Guess you were probably schooled at St Bedes and John Leggott then?

Hey cool, someone replied. Yeah i went to bedes and leggott. Also websters. I follow the iron indeed but am not fanatical like some people i know!! When did you leave scunny?
Metal Chicken Posted Jan 23, 2003
Yep, I went to Augustine Websters too Long enough ago that when I was first at the school he was only Blessed not St (Now I feel old )
I left Scunny many years ago, as soon as I had the decent excuse of going off to uni - and unlike my sister have never admitted defeat and gone back to live there! I still go back to visit but after 20 years away I REALLY don't want to go back!
