Are you up for the Football Manager 2021 challenge of taking Scunthorpe United from the 4th tier football back up to the heights in the championship they once took for granted? See why Scunthorpe is a team to manage in FM21.


Founded in 1899, Scunthorpe United have been a football club for well over 100 years and currently play their football at Glanford Park in the English football league 2 (4th tier of English football). A club fairly starved of honours, with their latest being a runners up medal in the Football League Trophy in 2009, the club are hungry for success. Could you be the one to help them there?

The management Team


Along with the manager, a club must have a good backroom staff alongside them to share workload, wisdom and experience, and a good backroom team can affect a club in a number of positive ways. Within the Scunthorpe staff, there are a couple of characters who can be valuable assets to any manager who joins. 

GK Coach - Paul Musselwhite

One of these is goalkeeping coach Paul Musselwhite. A fairly successful goalkeeper in his time, making 692 appearances for 11 different clubs, including Scunthorpe United on 2 separate stints. 

Assistant Manager - Mark Lillis


Another highlight within the coaching staff is assistant manager Mark Lillis. 

Mark Lillis FM21

Another seasoned professional in his hay-day, Lillis has had a brilliant career playing for the likes of Manchester City, Derby County and Huddersfield Town in his prime. This experience will be essential to have at your side as you work your way throughout the leagues.

The Playing Squad


Despite the on-field struggles in real life, the Scunthorpe United squad within FM21 isn’t bad, and there are certainly some highlights within the squad to talk about. 

George Taft - Defender (Centre) / D (L)

One of these players is defender George Taft. A player rich in lower league experience, Taft has been a solid choice at both centre back and left-back for the likes of Cambridge and Mansfield Town in the past, and after a loan spell at Scunthorpe, Taft signed a new permanent deal at Glanford Park in 2021. 

Alex Gilliead - Attacking Left Winger

Another highlight within the team Is tricky midfielder Alex Gilliead. The England youth international is another lower league veteran within the game, despite only being 25 years old, after spending loan deals at the likes of Bradford, Luton Town and Carlisle United before signing permanently for Scunthorpe in 2019. Along with the younger members of the squad, for example, Teddy Howe (On loan from Blackpool) rounds off a well-balanced squad that has more than enough potential to be a decent lower league squad.

Summary


In conclusion, a save with Scunthorpe won't be the easiest walk in the park compared to others within the league; however, it would be rewarding for any manager to take the club back up to the heights in the championship they once took for granted. Backed by your backroom staff of seasoned professionals and a squad that is more than capable of competing within the Sky bet league two and will serve as a solid base going forward as you progress up the leagues and take on new challenges.
