Iron to face Grantham Town in Lincolnshire Senior Cup

22 June 2021

The Iron have been drawn to face Grantham Town in the quarter-finals of the Lincolnshire Senior Cup, sponsored by Bluefin Sport.

United were drawn at home to face the Northern Premier League Premier Division side, but a mutual agreement between the two sides has seen this fixture reversed to be played at the South Kesteven Stadium on Monday, August 2, 2021 (7.45pm kick-off).

Admission details and prices have been confirmed by the home side, and are as follows:

  Prices
Adult £8
Concessions (65+) £5
Under-18s £2
Under-14s FREE (if accompanied by a paying adult)

The competition returns after not taking place last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Iron's last involvement coming in 2019 when a youthful side was knocked out by Boston United in Round One.

Scunthorpe are 20-time winners of the competition, but last picked up the accolade a decade ago in 2011.

Incidentally, the last time United met the Gingerbreads was in the 2001-02 final of the Lincolnshire Senior Cup on August 1, 2002 (held over from the previous season), a day over 19 years prior to the latest fixture against them.

On that day, the Iron won 3-0 thanks to a brace from Paul Wheatcroft and a Martin Carruthers goal.

The full draw for the competition's early rounds are as follows:

Preliminary Round 
Cleethorpes Town v Stamford
Lincoln United v Boston United

Quarter Finals 
Scunthorpe United v Grantham Town
Spalding United v Grimsby Town
Cleethorpes Town / Stamford v Lincoln United / Boston United
