OTD: August 20

20 August 2022

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 20...

Former Iron players born on this day: Matt Murphy (1971), Jack King (1985), Luke O’Neill (1991).

United put in a five-star performance as they put Gillingham to the sword at home in 2016.
Kevin van Veen's long range effort proved too hot to handle for Stuart Nelson as Scunthorpe took the lead before ex-player Josh Wright felled Josh Morris in the area to allow him to double the lead himself.
Jordan Clarke made it 3-0 on the stroke of half time before Morris struck from range to add a fourth. Tom Hopper added a fifth from close range after Hakeeb Adelakun did the hard work, but Scott Laird saw a late penalty saved after a foul on Conor Townsend.
In 2011, the Iron salvaged a point at The Valley following a brace from Bobby Grant, the second of which coming in second half stoppage time. 
The result ended the Addicks' 100% record as United came from 2-0 down to earn a point. 
Meanwhile, in 2005, Billy Sharp introduced himself in style to the Scunthorpe United faithful as he came off the bench to fire in a debut goal to earn three points against Nottingham Forest.
Sharp was allowed to turn in the area and spiral a shot into the net from yards out following a sharp turn.
