SCARBOROUGH Athletic boss Rudy Funk threw down a challenge to the NCEL Premier’s sides after Saturday’s edgy 2-1 success against Hall Road Rangers.

Funk was ecstatic after Boro came back from a goal down in the last 10 minutes.

He said: “Bring it on. Bring me your best side, not your injured players or reserves.

“We want the top sides because we want the challenge and we love to play the tough games.”

Funk added: “I loved every minute of that game, from walking onto the pitch to walking off it. Both sides need a lot of credit for that.

“It was a great game of football.”
