Mixed fortunes for Scunthorpe at Wembley this season - wouldn't the fans of Arsenal or Liverpool love to have said that! As outsiders they gained promotion back to the Championship through the play-offs but in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final they were favourites but lost to the side relegated from the League, Luton Town.
