season for Russ Wilcox sincd taking charge 29 games ago. Promotion was
secured, not because of what they had done at Exeter ` the Iron and
lost 2`0 ` but because Fleetwood failed to win. It added up to a
position where the Iron cannot be caught in the race for a top three
promotion slot. We've not done it today, but we ve

unbelievable run of 28. And the games before that. Right from

preseason, we knew we had a good group. And we have shown th`t. Not
today, but the bigger picture is we've got over the line. We still
have a chance of winning thd have a chance of winning the
Championship. More than 600 had made the journey
from Lincolnshire and in a deluge, they got what they wanted.
A great achievement. As soon as Russ Wilcox took over, he got the team
sorted and look where we ard now. At the end of the day, we have
sorted and look where we are now. At the end of the day, we h`ve gone
up and we have done well. Absolutely soaking, but it was worth
it. A long journey home but it was great!
Promotion is a certainty. The record`breaking unbeaten run for
their manager is over. But the players want to be crowned champions
next week. A lot of credit has to go to
Southend today forgetting as a result down there. But a fantastic
feeling. I think we deserve it overall. Now hopefully going for the
Championship. I think Scunthorpe United whll be
happy to see the end of Exeter City because they have done the double
over them this season. This ground stays as a League Two ground next
season. Scunthorpe United are onwards and upwards into Le`gue One.
We'll have the rest of the sport in a few minutes' time.

scrap yard says they will live on on`board a replica built from
scratch. We've got the City of Culture coming
up in 2017. As a group, we would like to see the boat on the Humber
for that. But realistically we need big business to come in. We need to
set up a trust fund. We need, conservatively, ?8 million. Which
isn't a lot of money if you think about it realistically.
The Lincoln Castle ferried passengers across the Humber until
1978. In later years, she bdcame a pub in Grimsby but was
controversially scrapped thdre in controversially scrapped thdre in

preservation society raising thousands of pounds to buy her.
We can try to put a plaster on history. And try to bring something
back. Hull City Council has already made a
bid to bring the retiring HLS bid to bring the retiring HLS
Illustrious to the city as an Illustrious to the city as an
attraction. The new interest in the waterfront is being welcomed.
Our engagement with the sea is ongoing and we can make so much of

terms. There is a long way to go before
terms. There is a long way to go bdfore the
Lincoln Castle is seen on the Humber again. But the hope is that renewed
interest and investment in the area could help make it a realitx.

never easy, but they've shown their resilience.
