Scarborough RUFC have been handed another boost ahead of the new season after South African Nino Cutino signed up for another season at Silver Royd.

Cutino has enjoyed a successful two years on the pitch for the Yorkshire One side and finished in the top five for the inaugural Scarborough News Player of the Year Award last season.

Following a meeting between a handful of senior players and new head coach Lee Douglas, Cutino was more than happy to sign up for another year at the club.

Cutino said: “I’ve signed up for another year and I’m feeling good about it.

“It’s exciting times for the club with the new coach coming in and I can’t wait to get back into pre-season now.

“A few of us met with the new coach and once I’d heard his plans, my mind was made up to stay on. We still need to bring a few players in to progress but things are looking good.”

While the club harbour ambitions to see progression on the pitch next season, the South African man-mountain has even higher hopes ahead of the new campaign.

He added: “Personally, I want us to win the league next season. The club obviously want to challenge for the top three and possibly challenge for promotion, and that is great.

“It is a must for the club that we progress anyway and we’ll be looking to make a good start to the season.”

Douglas will meet his full squad for the first time next Tuesday as the players return for their first pre-season session, and while Cutino will be sunning himself in Egypt, he has been keeping active in the gym and up at the club in a bid to hit the ground running.

He added: “I’ll be missing the first couple of sessions as I’m away on holiday but I’ve been doing a lot of running and have been at the gym and at sevens practice, so I’ll be in decent shape once I get back.”
