OTD: August 24

24 August 2021

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

Former and current Iron players born on this day: Liam Trotter (1988), Finley Shrimpton (2002).

When the fixtures came out ahead of the 1954/55 season, the majority of supporters will have been looking forward to the second fixture more than the first.

The Iron travelled to Blundell Park to compete in an early local derby in which three-to-four thousand Scunthorpe supporters commuted for the game to see their side tear apart the Mariners in front of a total crowd of over 20,000.
It was the hosts who went ahead after 12 minutes though, with McGill's shot restoring parity before the interval.
The second half belonged to United with goals from Gregory, Brown and Jones.  
Overall playing record for August 24: Played 14, Won 5, Drawn 4, Lost 5, Scored 18, Conceded 20.
