Think Bigdog produced a list a few months back showing average league attendances over the period each club has been a member of football league, seem to recall that town were currently in “league1” with an average over 7000, whilst both Lincoln and Scunny were in “league 2” with Lincoln above Scunny with average crowds quite a few hundred more than Scunny.

Honestly, as a town fan who grew up in Rasen and have lived in Lincoln since 1977, I have never took an interest in Scunthorpe and never regarded them as major competitors and appreciate for most town fans they are the big rival but Not for me. Most Lincoln fans I believe see Town as their big local rivals and in reality never hear them discuss Scunny either.

Suppose their bigger than Gainsborough but that’s about it.

I won't be disappearing as very very confident this season now we have Cox in place and someone who knows the club.
Like I say it won't be king til we overtake Lincoln

I'm very surprised you want a bet tbh looking at your current plight

Our current plight!!  

Okay, we're currently bottom of the league but we do have 2 games in hand of everyone else, or put it another way, 4 points behind Scunny with 2 games in hand. I'm confident Ollie will turn it around and we'll be climbing up that table very soon.

Six fingers? Funny enough that's what we call you lot.

Scunthorpe have always been your biggest rival and why would you want to go and live in Lincoln? It's a complete dump.
Scunthorpe is the Garden Town of the North

Scunny have the advantage of entering the FL in the early 50's when virtually everyone had their record average attendances post WW2, whereas Town & Imps have the 1890's as part of their rich history, when the game was very much in its infancy.

Gainsborough is perhaps a tad harsh there LM56', but perhaps Boston is a more realistic comparison?

Scunthorpe have won one game this season and financially have lost £7.5 million over the last two seasons. Wow

An off day for The Imps, although Montsma netted his 6th goal of the season (not bad for a defender)

Small margins went against us, a stonewall pen not given, then Bris Rovers get one when the initial contact was outside of the box. The Gas were well organised defensively and probably edged it overall, so no complaints.
