OTD: November 24

24 November 2020

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 24...

Former Iron players born on this day: Sir Ian Botham (1955), David McLean (1957), Ian Juryeff (1962), Garry Thompson (1980), Andy Welsh (1983), Alex Davey (1994).

The Iron won 7-1 at home to Darlington in Division Three On This Day in 2001. 

The Quakers suffered a torrid first half, going in four down and seeing Barry Conlon sent off after only seven minutes and Mark Ford red-carded 26 minutes later by referee Paul Alcock.

By that stage, Tommy Taylor's side were already heading for a heavy defeat with goals from Martin Carruthers, Steve Torpey and a Peter Beagrie penalty.

Carruthers added a fourth on the stroke of half-time.

Substitute Gareth Sheldon and Torpey made it six after the break before Simon Betts grabbed a 73rd-minute consolation.

But with 12 minutes left, midfielder Richard Kell headed the seventh against the hapless visitors.
