Paddy pops up to help Iron fan Ross

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

PADDY MAD­DEN left a Scun­thorpe fan with mu­sic in his ears af­ter the striker popped up on twit­ter with a gen­er­ous of­fer.

Iron fan Ross Gibson sold his iPod so he could af­ford a ticket to last week­end’s League One clash at strug- gling Ley­ton Ori­ent.

And af­ter de­scrib­ing his dilemma on the so­cial net­work­ing site, Mad­den re­sponded and left a ticket for the ded­i­cated fan.

Gibson said: “I was look­ing around my bed­room at what could get some cash. I bought the iPod be­fore I got my new phone, and thought I might get £50 or £60 for it on eBay. With that I could cover my travel and ticket.

“I didn’t di­rect the tweet at Paddy about sell­ing my iPod, and his re­sponse was com­pletely un­ex­pected. He de­serves recog­ni­tion for what he has done and this ges­ture just shows the to­geth­er­ness of the club.

“This is such a good re­flec­tion on the club. It means I can save the money from sell­ing my iPod and use it for some­thing else.”
