Match Of The Past: Scunthorpe United

1 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   February 14, 2013  |     11

We continue our series of the archive matches of the clubs of Football League One this morning with one of the stalwarts of the lower divisions, Scunthorpe United. Our first match is from the 1957/58 season, and features Scunthorpe – then still known as Scunthorpe & Lindsay United – at home against Liverpool in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup. For our second match, we stay in the same round of the same competition, only this time it’s twelve years later and Scunthorpe are travelling to Wiltshire to play Swindon Town in February 1970. We then complete a hat-trick of FA Cup matches with our next match, which sees Scunthorpe at home against Leeds United in a Third Round Second Replay match from the start of 1984. Our second three matches are all from the Football League. First up is a trip to play Hull City in October 1996, and then we have a home match against Mansfield Town from November 2000, and finally we have the club’s promotion party from the end of the 2006/07 season.
