OTD: August 13

13 August 2021

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 13...

Former Iron players born on this day: Gary McSheffrey (1982).

Our last game on this day saw United come from 2-0 down to register a point against Fleetwood Town at Highbury.

It meant Scunthorpe had four points on the board from their opening two games of the campaign, with Tom Hopper bundling the ball over the line following a saved header from Jordan Clarke to make it 2-1 after the side fell two goals down with strikes either side of the half time interval.

Kevin van Veen struck the equaliser soon after as he cut inside from the left to curl an unstoppable shot into the top corner - a strike that was voted as the club's goal of the season.

In 2011, the Iron opened their home campaign with a 1-1 against Preston, as Andy Barcham rescued a late point.

Iain Hume lashed the visitors ahead early on with a powerful shot from 25 yards out.

With time running out the Iron secured a share of the spoils when Barcham's curled effort beat Lillywhites keeper Iain Turner.  

Overall playing record for August 13: Played 6, Won 1, Drawn 4, Lost 1, Scored 7, Conceded 7.
