OTD: May 22

22 May 2022

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on May 22...

Former Iron players born on this day: Derek Hemstead (1943), Phil Holyoak (1959).

The Iron were defeated 2-1 at Blackpool in the Division Four play-off final semi-final second leg on this day in 1991.

Following a 1-1 scoreline at home in the first leg, there was everything to play for going into the second leg at Bloomfield Road.
Dave Hill put the Iron in the ascendancy early on, but a brace from David Eyres saw Scunthorpe's Wembley bubble burst - and it was back to the drawing board for the 1991/92 campaign, another in Division Four. 
Overall playing record for May 22: Played 1, Won 0, Drawn 0, Lost 1, Scored 1, Conceded 2. 

The Iron's full record for May 22 is as follows:
1991 Division Four PO SF Second Leg Blackpool 2-1 Iron Hill
