Former and current Iron players born on this day: Allan Thompson (1952), Sean Shields (1992), Matt Crooks (1994), George Hornshaw (2000).

Martyn Woolford and Krystian Pearce scored second-half goals to put Scunthorpe in charge of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern final On This Day in 2009. 

Woolford opened the scoring on the hour beating goalkeeper Andy Warrington from close range after a well-worked move that split open the Millers defence.

Rotherham nearly hit back late on but Ian Sharps dragged his shot wide.
