Boro board place up for grabs

Scarborough Athletic fans have just a few days left to book their place on the club’s board.

The shut off point to fill the four places up for grabs in this year’s board election is Friday.

Current directors Nick Finch, Andy Troughton and Sandra Troughton will all have to re-apply for their places on the board, and the club have also created a new berth for new blood.

A club spokesman said: “You ordinarily would never get the opportunity as a supporter of Manchester United, or most other club sides, to have your opinion heard in the boardroom and to roll your sleeves up and run a football club.

“But because of the way in which the club is structured, as a fans’ run Trust, any current paid-up Joint Owner has the chance to join the board of directors.

“If you have the time and enthusiasm, and think you have something to offer, please give serious consideration to standing for election.”
