Scunthorpe United manager Mark Robins hopes his team can progress after the club survived in League One after being promoted the year before:
Scunthorpe United have appointed Steve Taylor as their new chief scout.
Taylor has been a coach at Derby County for 20-years and also worked with Iron boss Mark Robins' at Rotherham United, Barnsley, Coventry City and Huddersfield Town.
Scunthorpe United striker Gary McSheffrey has signed a one-year deal at the League One club.
The former Coventry City player made fifty appearances in all competitions for the Iron last season, scoring ten goals and making 18.
Scunthorpe United have signed a young striker who was sacked by Leicester City for his alleged involvement in a racist sex video.
Tom Hopper, 21, was on loan at Glanford Park last season and the club says it has put "a considerable amount of thought" into the decision to re-sign him.
Hooper's contract at Leicester was terminated following an internal investigation after a sexually explicit video appeared online showing him and two other teammates allegedly racially abusing Thai girls.
Police are warning fans without tickets for today's League One clash between Scunthorpe United and Sheffield United not to travel to the game.
Officers also say fans with tickets travel early to ensure they arrive before kick off.
Sheffield United's match at home today at Scunthorpe has been postponed because the cold weather has made access to Bramall Lane unsafe.
Referee Mark Heywood said he called the Sky Bet League One clash off "on health and safety grounds".
The Blades announced on Twitter that Heywood believed the pitch would have been playable, but the access in and around the ground was a cause for concern.
