The Iron Vault: Club archive

30 June 2020

As you may have seen prominently over recent weeks, Scunthorpe United have a Twitter account called 'The Iron Vault' where we share lots of brilliant Iron moments, a few not so great United memories, On This Days, birthdays and look at what former players and managers are up to.

With there being no Iron football for four months now and testing times for everybody during this pandemic, it has proved to be a great way of reliving past memories for our supporters.

Over a number of years we've tried to put together a strong archive of photographs and videos of past players and from old matches, but there are still areas for improvement and that's where we're hoping you could possibly help us.

If you have any DVDs or videos of any Iron-related content that you think would come in useful to us, we'd be very keen to hear from you - likewise with photos.

Did you keep recordings of football highlights shows on ITV, Sky and other channels, such as Nationwide League Extra, Yorkshire Goals on Sunday, The Championship, Football League Review, etc? If so please get in touch, because they could be very useful for us as we look to share moments of our history with our supporters.

We have our goals from every first team competitive game since April 2008, but if you're able to help out in any way, here's a list of the most recent matches in which United scored where we don't have the footage.

2007-08 season: Aug 14: Hartlepool (H) L 1-2; Nov 27: Coventry City (A) D 1-1; Dec 15: Ipswich Town (A) L 2-3; Mar 1: Coventry City (H) W 2-1; Mar 11: Plymouth Argyle (H) W 1-0.

2005-06 season: Jan 21: Doncaster (H) L 1-2; Feb 18: Swansea (H) D 2-2; Mar 14: Hartlepool (H) W 2-0; Mar 18: Chesterfield (A) W 2-1; Apr 1: Bradford (A) L 2-4; Apr 8: Bournemouth (H) D 2-2; Apr 14: Yeovil (A) W 1-0; Apr 22: Rotherham (A) D 1-1.

2003-04 season: Oct 17: Northampton (A) D 1-1; Oct 21: Carlisle (A) W 4-1; Nov 8: Shrewsbury (H) W 2-1; Nov 15: Macclesfield (A) D 2-2; Dec 20: Yeovil (A) L 1-2; Feb 21: Northampton (H) W 1-0; Mar 9: York (A) W 3-1; Mar 23: Carlisle (H) L 2-3; Apr 12: Cheltenham (A) L 1-2; May 1: Cambridge (A) L 2-3.

Then for the seasons before then, it is rather sporadic so any help would be appreciated.
