It's kick-off for Glanford EP
The results may not be going the way of Scunthorpe United this season at Glanford Park, but things have never looked better for four 18-year-olds who borrowed the name of the stadium for their rock band.
Glanford the band will launch their debut EP this Saturday at Scunthorpe's Baths Hall.
Then lead singer-guitarist Joe Nash and singer-guitarist Adam Sennitt will be heading off to Huddersfield University to study music technology and production.
Also leaving Scunthorpe will be bassist-singer Oliver Nolan who is hoping to graduate as a music technologist in London.

The outgoing threesome have however promised their stay-at-home drummer-singer Josh Smith that they will be back as a band during vacations.
Adam said their EP featured five self-penned tracks, Tonight Matthew, Medicine, If They Came to Hear Me Beg, If Only You Knew and The Pity and The Prey.
He said: "We are inspired by all aspects of British music from Muse, Arctic Monkeys and the Libertines to Pulled Apart by Horses, the Cribs and Blur.
"We recorded the EP at the Fractured Sound studios in Scunthorpe with producer Chris Johnson in charge.
"We are hoping fans will purchase the record at £3 a time."
Also looking for success with their debut record are Superfecta, a London-based band who feature Messingham-born Danun Todd on guitars.
Father of three Danun, 43, said: "It's an online track called She's A Star written by myself and lead singer Andy Urwin. It has the same title as the 1997 top 10 hit by James, but it is a different concept."
Danun, who was educated at the Frederick Gough and John Leggott Colleges in Scunthorpe, said he, Andy, bassist Michael Rayner and drummer Junior Hernandez got together in August 2011.
He said: "We took our name Superfecta from a type of wager used in horse-racing and so far the gamble appears to have paid off.
"We are currently in discussion with a London-based record production and artist management firm called Animal Farm over shaping our career."
Danun last month brought Superfecta for a homecoming gig at the town's Priory Hotel and was so impressed by the reception the band are thinking of a return next month for the annual Scunthorpe Rock Open.
Glanford's debut single will be on sale at the concert this Saturday. Admission on the door is £6.
