Midfielder Jack Jenkins joined National League North outfit Scunthorpe United on a season-long loan this week and the 21-year-old was handed his Irons debut in Saturday’s hosting of Buxton as a second-half substitute.

A Tweet from Scunthorpe United read: “We have been informed that the referee has abandoned the game, rather than blown the full-time whistle. As soon as we have further information, we will let you know.”
