Scarborough Athletic chairman Dave Holland has announced that skipper Matty Bloor will oversee the team when they host Spennymoor on Boxing Day.
Bloor will step into the breach while the club seek a replacement for Bryan Hughes and Paul Foot, who left by mutual consent last night.
Holland said: "To avoid any damaging speculation at this stage, I can regrettably confirm that Bryan and Paul have left the club by mutual consent.
"Matty, as captain, will oversee things for the game against Spennymoor and while we look to bring in a replacement for Paul and Bryan.
"We have some ideas at the moment about the future, but nothing at all has been confirmed."
