NEW DATE SET FOR AUTY

SCUNTHORPE have pencilled in Good Friday, April 15 to stage Josh Auty’s much-delayed Testimonial meeting.

Auty, the Scorpions’ leading all-time points scorer, was due to celebrate his special event in March 2020 but it was called off days beforehand when the sport was shut down due to the pandemic.

But the club have always maintained they would host the meeting even though Auty lost his team place when they signed Adam Ellis earlier this year.

Promoter Rob Godfrey said: “I have spoken to Josh about his Testimonial. I’m planning for it to be our opening meeting and for it to take place on Good Friday.

“Just in case of a rain-off, which we hope doesn’t happen, I’ll keep Easter Sunday free for him as well.

“Josh is a club legend – he remains the only Scunthorpe rider to have won three league titles with us. I’m sure the fans will turn out in force for him and will make it a day to remember.”
