Preview: Scarborough Athletic (A)

17 February 2024

The Iron return to action, facing a Scarborough Athletic side  who are fighting for promotion themselves sitting in seventh place in the table, the final play-off spot.

Similarly to our run of form, the Boro have picked up just two wins in their last eight matches, and have not had a victory in their last three, losing twice and drawing once.

In the reverse fixture, the Iron made a statement with an emphatic victory winning 4-1, Fin Shrimpton, Cameron Wilson and Danny Elliott all got on the scoresheet and the fourth goal was an own goal by Euan Mulhern, before Lewis Maloney got a consolation for Boro.


Tickets for the game are sold out.

After seeing the transfer embargo lifted, the Iron welcomed new signings to the squad with attacking midfielder Flynn Clarke joining on loan until the end of the season from Norwich City. The 21-year-old has represented Scotland at Under-21 youth level and will be looking to bring some quality and experience to our squad.

Liam McAlinden, versatile forward, has also joined after his contract with Wrexham was cut short and will be looking to bring more goals for the Iron as we look to rack up more points on the table.

We have also signed talented winger Dylan Youmbi on a loan deal from Bradford until the end of the season, Youmbi has been performing on loan for Farsley Celtic and showed his talent against us both times we have played them this year.

All three new recruits are available for the Scarborough game as they look to have an
immediate impact for our season.

Elsewhere, Jason Law and Callum Roberts are both absent through injury.


As far as goalscorers go for Scarborough Harry Green leads the way for them as top scorer and has scored 11 goals in 26 appearances proving himself to be a key prolific player in the league.

Green came through another Boro’s ranks in Middlesbrough, where he came through the youth and played for the U18s and U21s before leaving to Whitby Town on a free transfer after being on loan for the club for whilst at Middlesborough. After one year at Whitby he was snapped up by our opponents today on a free transfer and they have reaped the rewards of this signing as Harry Green continues to prove his worth.

Match Reports

Report: Scarborough Athletic 0-0 Iron

17 February 2024

After an intense end-to-end encounter, the points were shared at the Flamingo Land Stadium with neither side being able to hit the back of the net despite a vast array of chances.

The Iron were back in away action set for a highly anticipated seaside encounter with fellow National League North promotion contenders Scarborough Athletic.

Scunthorpe first team manager Jimmy Dean added three new faces to his ranks with the forward additions of creative midfielder Flynn Clarke on loan from Norwich City, the experienced but heavily versatile Liam McAlinden on a free transfer following his departure from Wrexham and the devastatingly direct Dylan Youmbi on loan from Bradford City. These acquisitions seemed to influence Dean’s starting XI as McAlinden came straight into the side to replace striker Danny Elliott. Elsewhere, two further changes were made as Tyler Denton came back into his familiar left-back position as well as defensively dominant centre-half Andrew Boyce who replaced Maxim Kouogun.

With the Iron getting the game underway at the Flamingo Land Stadium, the fixture took an immediate tone of high intensity as Scunthorpe came out the blocks the better of two sides with a number of valiant attacks that proved to no avail.

The first chance of the encounter fell to the visitors as a well-crafted move down the right-flank allowed the ball to make its way into the feet of in-form wide man Dion Sembie-Ferris, who confidently strode past his opposite man and sild a delicate pass to the captain Michael Clunan. The skipper composed himself, but blazed his effort over the bar from the edge of the area.

Throughout the next 10 minutes of action, the hosts hit back with multiple chances that put strenuous amounts of pressure on the United back line. The first notable opportunity came on 20 minutes as the Seadogs converged on a miss placed backpass from Boyce, from which former Leeds United striker Frank Mulhern pulled a pinpoint pass back to the waiting winger Dom Tear on the edge of the area who sent the ball sailing into the leisure centre next door.

Less than minute later, Scarborough were at it again with a dangerous attack that was forged from dispossessing the Iron far up the pitch. This time it was Alex Wiles to intercept a loose pass, but he snatched at the opportunity by lashing a half-volley wide of the goal that was guarded by Ross Fitzsimons.

As the half drew to a close, Scunthorpe began to take hold of possession within centre of the pitch, using this sustained period of passing dominance a superb chance was created from a corner as a deep Jacob Butterfield cross found the superb darting run from right-back Reagan Ogle, who directed a header goalward that was flicked behind by York City loanee Ryan Whitely. 

As the sides returned to the turf for the second period of play, both outfits were requiring a much better display as they attacked towards their respective supporters.

Dean and his coaching staff seemed to have sparked life into their side based on the opening exchanges of second half play. United were playing with an unlocked freedom that has yet been unseen in the game. The first of a number of exceptional chances for Scunthorpe came from a long-ranged Butterfield free-kick effort that evaded the wall and forced an important diving save out of Whitely.

Within a matter of moments Scunthorpe came within touching distance of an opener as McAlinden was denied a debut goal as he cushioned the ball neatly within the box and directed an effort that was surely goal bound if not for the intervention of a backtracking Seadogs defender.

The next chance of proceedings was awarded from seemingly nowhere to the hosts as the robustness of Mulhern proved too much as he effortlessly shrugged off his marker and struck a dangerous low driven effort just wide of Fitzsimons’s far post.

Despite the Iron dominating possession across the board, the Seadogs were by no means failing to create chances as the afternoons efforts of Frank Mulhern was almost rewarded as he rose highest to meet a fierce delivery, sending a powerful header goalward that crashed against the bar before being hooked away by substitute Tom Pugh.

That was to be all she wrote for the fixture as the sides were bound to a 0-0 draw on the coast. The Iron performed valiantly but did everything but score as the points were shared.

IRON: Fitzsimons, Ogle, Evans, Boyce, Clunan, McAlinden, Butterfield (Elliott, 76), Scales (Pugh, 76), Sembie-Ferris, Denton, Whitehall (Youmbi, 67).

IRON SUBS: Kelly, Kouogun.
