Scarborough Pirates coach Chris Keld is keen for his side to push on after securing the Yorkshire Men’s Group 4 title in comfortable fashion.

Keld’s side secured the title with a 44-22 win over Hull Dockers, taking their unbeaten stretch to 10 games in what has been a dominant season for the Eastway outfit.

Keld said: “It’s great that we’ve managed to win the league and also stay unbeaten for 10 games as well.

“We’ve got two games to come and whatever happens we won’t be too concerned about.”

Keld has been impressed with the impact the new additions have made to the squad this campaign, in particular Craig Farrell, but at the same time is adamant the club has always had the potential to be successful regardless.

He added: “It’s not the be all and end all of our success this season, but obviously the new players have helped us a lot.

“Craig in particular brings a lot of experience to the side. He directs the lads around the pitch and you can see that he helps a lot.

“The potential has always been there though for the club to be successful.

“In 2010 we made the final, last year we were hit with a lot of injuries.

“We now want to push up the leagues and test ourselves.

“It’s the same in any sport though. You always want to play at the highest level you possibly can.”
