Iron on Sky

Last updated : 09 December 2002 By Patrick Hill
The game will be Scunthorpe's first live appearance on Sky since their two nil defeat at then conference club Rushden and Diamonds in the FA Cup over three years ago.

The game has now been switched to Thursday 19th of December, with a kick off time of 7.45pm presumably meaning the Iron's clash with Hartlepool at Victoria Park scheduled to be played the following night will be switched to a different date.

The Iron will recieve £100K in television fees from Sky for televising the game, as well as £30K should they progress.
Manager Brian Laws believes that this could be the pay day we've been waiting for: "It's an absolute goldmine for us and it could just change the whole complex of our season.

"It's something that we've been really waiting for: for many, many years."
