Scarborough Athletic have confirmed three more pre-season fixtures to follow on from the Scarborough Sports Village opener against Sheffield United.

Boro will tackle the Blades on Saturday July 15, a game that will be follow on Tuesday July 18 by a home clash against previous landlords Bridlington Town in competition for the inaugural David Holland Memorial Trophy.

Boro have also confirmed that they will travel to play Pickering Town on Tuesday August 1 and prior to that they will tackle a Scarborough Saturday League Rep Team at Scarborough RUFC's Silver Royd on July 22.

Chairman Trevor Bull said: "We have arranged the game against Bridlington just a few days after our opening pre-season fixture because there may be a few people who have missed out on getting tickets, we want them to be given the chance come down and see what we are about.

"It is so important that we maintain a good relationship with our local teams like Pickering and Bridlington because they have both been very helpful since we started as a club.

"As well as that, they will both give us very tough examinations.

"We are also very keen to support local football, which is why we want to continue our link up with the Scarborough Saturday League Rep Team."
