Glanford Park - Directions & the lowdown

Courtesy of our friends at, for a bit of history about Scunthorpe's home click HERE.

To get to the game tomorrow, take the M180 exiting at junction 3 onto the M181, stay on until roundabout when you should pick up the A18 (Doncaster Road) for Scunthorpe, the ground is around 200 yards down on your right.



Club informationTicketing & Pub & grub

If you haven't got a ticket for the game, the Millers have sold out their allocation of 2,178 as most of us know, with 500 of us in the corner of the Grove Wharf stand..

Priced at just a tenner in the seating areas with kids going for free, it's expected that a record JPT crowd will pack into Glanford Park tomorrow, although Scunny fans are still to get excited about their clubs place in the Northern Final, click HERE to read more.

For a good sup, The Old Farmhouse is the closest to the ground but usually there are no colours allowed.

There is another pub near the ground called the Berkeley which is recommended. The Honest Lawyer is also decent on Oswald Road if you're on the train and walking up on the way.

Other recommended jaunts are the Dolphin Inn at Keadby about 4 to 5 miles out of town, also if at the motorway end you turn left instead of right to Glanford Park, about 2 minutes drive down there's the Jolly Sailor.

Taking our own Scunnymiller's adivce, you could also come off a junction early and following the A18 there's a few pubs and nearby villages enroute worth a stop off.

Plenty to go at, all that remians is to wish you a safe trip and lets hope for a good performance from the lads.
