SCARBOROUGH’S burly South African prop Nino Cutino is planning on taking up the role of party pooper at Silver Royd this Saturday, as rivals Driffield rock up at Silver Royd in search of a victory by a five-point margin that will seal them a play-off spot.

Scarborough go into the game in buoyant spirits after a 41-0 hammering of Heath last weekend, and Cutino is confident of another win this time around.

He said: “It’s the last game of the season and we’re confident. The team is feeling good and looking forward to the game.

“They’re a strong team and they’re after promotion so they’ll be bringing a strong team and will really be up for it.

“But we’re going to spoil the party.”

It has been a testing couple of weeks for the club, with the sad passing of Andrew ‘Mo’ Stevenson.

The club’s players performed an emotional guard of honour at his funeral, and Cutino insists the squad and club are a close-knIt bunch.

He added: “Last Saturday was sad, the funeral was sad, it has all been sad for the entire club.

“It has brought the club together and hopefully we’ll take that onto the pitch with us on Saturday.

“We’ve ended the season well and I think next season is set up well for us to challenge.”
