The Scarborough-based pair have come through the Scholarship set-up under the tutorship of Steve Brennan, Denny Ingram and Ryan Blott.

Boro recently forged links with the Scholarship and this is the first sign of this flourishing.

Scarborough Football Scholarship is a further education course mixing football and the chance to study for a BTEC in sport. They are based at the Flamingo Land Stadium.
