Scunthorpe United: Club Profile
After relegation to League Two in 2013, The Iron passed us on the way up as Boro’ went down the next year. Scunthorpe United did seem to go from (relative) strength to strength in the seasons that followed; finishing third in League One and missing out on promotion by four points in 2016-7, before making the playoffs again in the 2017-8 season with their fifth place finish. But then it all went badly wrong; relegated back down to League Two at the end of the 2018-9 campaign.

Facilities for Disabled Fans
The first thing to note on arrival at Scunthorpe United is that disabled parking is available; free to blue badge holders on a first-come, first-served basis. In the East Stand Car Park, you’ll find a total of 24 dedicated disabled parking spaces.
In terms of stadium facilities, the club aims to help those with a disability or impairment as per its Disabled Supporters Policy. There are 16 wheelchair seating spaces in the ground, while visually impaired fans can make use of a Hospital Radio commentary service.
For more details and further support, you can contact the club on 01724 747683.
For a swift half before kick off, you don’t have to stray too far. It sounds like the Iron Bar at the ground itself will let you in. Just a short walk away, meanwhile, is The Old Farmhouse – but be aware that you might not be let in if you’re wearing colours.
You can also grab a beer inside the stadium.
Scunthorpe United Travel Information – Distance: 156 miles
Scunthorpe United’s ground is handily located at the end of the journey from Stevenage, sited just off the end of the M181. To get there in the first place, take the northbound A1 and leave at Junction 35, taking the third exit on the roundabout for the eastbound M18. Leave the motorway at Junction 5 and take the third exit on the roundabout for the M180 towards Scunthorpe.
Stay on the M180 for nearly 12 miles until you reach Junction 3, at which point you will need to bear left onto the M181. At the end of this motorway, take the third exit at the roundabout for the A18 Doncaster Road. You’ll soon get to a second roundabout; again, take the third exit. Glanford Park is at the end of the access road.
It doesn’t seem as if parking should be too much of an issue at Scunthorpe United. The club has a decent-sized car park with space for 600; available to both home and visiting fans at £3 a pop. Like Roaring Meg here, however, local retail parks have restrictions in force on matchdays.

Walking isn’t really an option from the station. It’s two miles between the station and the ground and will take you around 45 minutes at best. If it’s a nice day, however…
