Scarborough RUFC skipper Tom Ratcliffe insists the team need to concentrate for longer periods of games heading into their derby clash against Malton at Silver Royd on Saturday.

The side have come in for criticism for switching off at key moments after another narrow defeat at Hullensians on Saturday.

Ratcliffe is keen to look forward though, starting with a huge derby clash.

The skipper said: “People are being honest with their words, which is what we need to be if we’re going to build.

“It’s frustrating, but we just need to concentrate for longer periods in games.

“I’ve never played a league game against Malton, so I’m looking forward to getting out there on Saturday.”
