Scarborough Athletic boss Rudy Funk is delighted to have a trio of experienced Scarborians on his side.

Assistant boss Denny Ingram, skipper Tony Hackworth and striker Ryan Blott may not have hailed from the town, but they have lived here for a number of years and have been firmly welcomed by the Scarborough people.

All three turned out for Scarborough FC and have since made their mark for Scarborough Athletic.

Funk said: “Experience in football is key and these guys have plenty of it.

“Not only have they played further up the football pyramid, but they are also experienced in all things Scarborough.

“They have been through the harder times with the old club and now they have become a part of something at Scarborough Athletic.

“Players do talk among themselves and these guys regularly pass on to their teammates what it is to play for Scarborough.”
