I WOULD like to say how it’s an absolute disgrace that Scarborough does not have a football ground of our own.
As for Scarborough Council selling off the Athletic ground, they have a lot to answer for.
What I would like to know is, what happened to the substantial amount of money left to this town by the late Eric, and his sister, Plaxton of the Plaxtons Coach Builders? Neither were married but left money to use for the people of Scarborough. So where did that money go?
This could have been used for the ground. There were many ways in which our football ground could have been saved but they refused to budge.
