OTD: August 17

17 August 2019

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 17...

The Iron began the 1985-86 season in full flow at home to Torquay United. It was a game played in humid conditions and it saw the home side thrive with two goals in each half to get the season off to the best possible way.

Tommy Graham and Julian Broddle netted in the first half, with Steve Cammack and Ron Green netting in the second half to seal the point.
The last time United played on this day was the first ever encounter between Scunthorpe and Dagenham & Redbridge.
David Mirfin thought he'd won the game for the hosts in the 88th minute, but a later strike salvaged a point for the league newcomers.
Overall playing record for August 17: Played 8, Won 2, Drawn 3, Lost 3, Scored 8, Conceded 10.
