OTD: May 4

4 May 2023

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on May 4...

Former Iron players born on this day: Bill Punton (1934).

Relegated Scunthorpe and Colchester bid farewell to the Championship with a goal-filled draw at Glanford Park On This Day in 2008. 

Kevin McLeod's header put the visitors ahead before Jonathan Forte levelled from the edge of the six-yard box.

Scott Vernon's spectacular overhead strike and McLeod's 25-yard lob put the U's two ahead shortly after the break.

But Paul Hayes pulled one back with a volley and levelled from close range to rescue a point for the Iron and cap an entertaining encounter.
