Scunthorpe’s players put on something of a finishing masterclass today at Glanford Park in a welcome home display for new manager Graham Alexander.

Alexander, who had only been in the job with the Iron since taking over from Nicky Daws on Tuesday, saw his charges hit Luke Williams’ Swindon Town for six as Scunthorpe emerged victorious in a game that ended 6-0.

Five players contributed to the 6-0 scoreline in a game Scunny easily dominated. The scoring was started with Conor Townsend’s 27th minute opener and finished 49 minutes later when Hopper scored his second on 76 minutes. In between these two goal markers, Scunthorpe scored a quartet of goals through Jordan Clarke (44′), Hakeeb Adelakun (48′), Hopper’s first (52′) and Patrick Madden’s 18th of the season (62′).

Scunthorpe manager Alexander will no doubt be understandably ecstatic with how his team have performed in his first appearance as manager at home.

However, on social media site Twitter, fans of the Iron are also tickled pink at the way their team performed.

This Scunthorpe fan is just thankful that it wasn’t a season of wasted support.

Not all Scunthorpe fans are happy that they scored six goals.

This fan looked away from the six goals scored and instead focused on efforts at the other end of the pitch.

Scunthorpe play 5th place Bradford City in their next game, a match up that will likely be more testing than today’s encounter.
