The iconic Scarborough FC gates finally left their residence at the former Athletic Ground this morning.

After sealing off the former home of Scarborough FC, which is now a construction site for a new Lidl supermarket, they were taken to Premier Engineering on Barry's Lane to be refurbished, before being put in storage.

Once the new Scarborough Leisure Village at Weaponness is completed, the gates will take up position there.

Boro director Doug Kendall said: "I would like to say thank you to Lidl for their help and also to Boro fans Dave Hunter, Dave Morgan and Kevin Matthews, who took the gates down for us."
