Scunthorpe took the lead through a Gary Hooper header after 20 minutes and two Paul Hayes strikes either side of half-time completed the scoring.

But the game gave the Mariners’ youngsters useful match experience as boss Mike Newell rested players for the friendly against Leeds. Goalkeeper Leigh Overton playing a full game and winger Josh Fuller impressing.
