Scunthorpe Winger Linked Again
Wednesday, 2nd Jun 2021 10:52
Town are again being linked with Scunthorpe winger Alex Gilliead, along with Huddersfield, Coventry and Sunderland.
Gilliead, 25, was previously mentioned in connection with the Blues and Blackpool in March by Football League World.
Now the same source claims the the Blues, Terriers, Sky Blues and Black Cats are all in talks with the wideman, who is out of contract this summer and expected to leave Glandford Park.
Gilliead, who plays primarily on the right, joined the Iron in the summer of 2019 and has made 86 starts and three sub appearances for the League Two club, scoring seven times.
The six-foot-tall County Durham-born wideman or striker started his career with Newcastle United and featured for England’s U16, U17, U18 and U20 sides while at St James’ Park.
During his time as a Magpies player he spent spells on loan at Carlisle, Luton and Bradford before moving to Shrewsbury on a two-year deal in the summer of 2018 before departing for his current club for an undisclosed fee a year later.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
