Scunthorpe United
« on: September 28, 2023, 03:30:40 PM »
It is being reported on Twitter that Scunthorpe United have announced that David Hilton has withdrawn his funding from the club

The club will vacate Glanford Park after the Brackley game and play at Gainsborough Trinity for the rest of the season

(but Gainsborough Trinity know nothing about it)

Wow!

Massive cost cutting exercise going on there.  Jimmy Dean, maybe looking for a change of scenery? Thought Iíd put it out there
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Incredibly sad, take no pleasure in seeing any club in such a state and brings home the main problem with the benefactor model - great whilst they are supporting the financial doping, not so great when the pull the plug.  To be fair, not all Hilton's fault as they were in trouble way before he came on the scene but he may well have been their last hope.  Hopefully something can be worked out with a new ownership group and preferably with a move back to Scunthorpe.

Phoenix Club maybe the only way forward.   It looks a right mess to sort out.  I guess there maybe a lot under the surface been going on thatís not public knowledge, yet

Any chance of looking to bring back Clunan? Or will he likely move elsewhere if someone pays similar to what heís on now?
