    We lost but probably scored the best goal by a Scunthorpe player or through build up for years.

    Played well, two mistakes just after half time cost us. Left back was very good. No.6 for Man Ure was excellent. Rain was coming through the roof ! My first visit there in 50 years !! Lou Macari fish shop was closed ! Obviously didn’t expect many away fans, 720 went, not sure they all came home. UTWI

    Probably the biggest away following of the season. Well at least hope so.

    Fantastic performance by our young lads played in atrocious conditions. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Well done Mr Daws for producing such a talented bunch of lads.
    The experience was tainted however by a group of mindless morons who abused the generosity of Simon Elliott, who laid on 3 free coaches, by deciding they would trash one of them in a drink and drug fuelled rampage.

    They will have the names of those on that coach. But yes very bad.

    Charlie O’Neill was bought by Man U from Man City in 2020 – they paid £750,000 !! – how can others compete with that.

    I wonder what their Academy operating budget is for the season?

    I’m sure if you visited the academy office at High Ridge, you’d get a coffee made for you à la mode of that which Baldrick used to brew in Blackadder Goes Forth!

    Money has always been the issue in football particularly more so since the Premier league came along, we can’t compete with bigger clubs financially, wow what a revelation!!🙄

    Was the ‘highlight’ of a sad season this FA Youth Cup game or the Lincs Cup win over Gainsborough?

    Highlight for me was Swann announcing he was selling up.

    I know and if he keeps borrowing money against the ground he probably never will, unfortunately the club will dissappear and thats my concern.
