Former Scarborough FC midfielder Mitch Cook has paid tribute to former club chairman Terry Wood.

Wood sadly passed away earlier this week after a long illness.

He is fondly remembered in Scarborough for playing a big part in getting Boro into the Football League.

Wood took the reins after the death of Barry Adamson in 1986 - the season Boro won the Conference.

Cook, who played in that side, said: “Terry just allowed Neil Warnock to manage the team and because of that we had the success we had.

“If you can have a perfect chairman, Terry was very close to that.

“As well as doing all he did for the club, Terry was also a true gent.

“He was a great character, a calming influence, and a genuinely nice man.”
