Sunday, July 28, 1940
Duncan Welbourne was born in Scunthorpe.
Signed by Bill McGarry in 1963, Welbourne was to break both the club's all-time appearance record, and set an imposing tally of 280 consecutive league games for the club.
He was ever-present in both the side that gained promotion to the second division for the first time, and the side that reached the semi-final of the FA Cup for the first time the following season.
