DENNY Ingram can’t wait to get going in his new role at Scarborough Athletic.
Ingram, 34, has been recruited by Boro boss Rudy Funk as joint assistant-manager with Darren France.
The boots will still be firmly on as he continues as a player, but he will also be contributing to Boro’s push for NCEL Premier success from a coaching angle.
Ingram said: “When you are coming to the end of your playing career you have to look at things from a different point of view.
“I have been looking to get into the coaching side of things, so this opportunity is perfect for me.
“I did it for a year when I was assistant manager to Mark Patterson at Scarborough FC, I also helped out by taking training sessions at the clubs I have been at since then.
“It is nice to have an official role now though.
“I am looking forward to being a part of the team in what looks set to be a bright future at the club.
“You go into every season trying to be successful and next term or aims will obviously be promotion.
“We will have to work hard if we are to achieve this though because it certainly will not be easy.
“A club like Scarborough Athletic has got to look to push for promotion and push through the leagues.
“Rudy has big ambitions for the club and being given the chance to jump on board alongside him is great.”
