OTD: May 21

21 May 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on May 21...

Scunthorpe rounded off their home campaign in 1965/66 with a comfortable 4-2 victory over Walsall at the Old Show Ground.
 
Four days earlier they had been held to a 1-1 draw with Watford on home soil, but United made sure they'd end the campaign with two successive victories, starting with the Saddlers before a trip to Oxford seven days later.
 
David Sloan netted a brace in this particular encounter, with Barrie Thomas and Brian Bedford also scoring - aiding the Iron to fourth position and narrowly missing out on promotion back to Division Two. 
 
Overall playing record for May 21: Played 2, Won 1, Drawn 0, Lost 1, Scored 5, Conceded 5.
