While Brian Laws, who signed Byrne for the club, will take charge of a representive side made up of other Iron players from the Irishman's spell in North Lincolnshire.Garry Thompson, Grant McCann, Mark Jackson, Martyn Woolford, Cleveland Taylor, Matt Sparrow, Andy Dawson, Paul Musselwhite, Lee Ridley and Andy Butler have all confirmed their attendance.

The open day is at Glanford Park on Sunday July 29, the event opens at midday and the match will kick-off at 3pm.
