'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Knill sacked

Weekend calls from sections of the Scunthorpe crowd for Alan Knill to be sacked have been heeded.

Following a ninth defeat in fifteen league one games, and a fifth at Glanford Park this season, Knill has paid the price with the 48-year-old sacked after around 19-months in charge.

A statement, which came out via Scunthorpe's official Twitter feed, read: 'Scunthorpe United Football Club has today relieved Alan Knill of his first-team duties with immediate effect.

'The difficult decision was made inevitable by the recent long run of disappointing performances, particularly at home.

'The club would like to thank Alan for his hard work and wish him well for the future.'

It has seemed that this was inevitable for the former Iron player, with him winning just 16 of 78 games in charge since his arrival in March 2011, with the club relegation from the Championship and struggling in league one since.
