A former Scarborough FC FA Cup hero could be set for a playing return to the east coast tomorrow night when Scarborough Athletic host Goole on Tuesday night, 7.45pm.

Karl Rose scored the winner when Boro beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0 in the first round of the FA Cup back in 2003.

That game was the second hurdle as Russell Slade's side powered through to tackle Chelsea in the fourth round. John Terry scored the only goal as the Premier League side won 1-0.

The Goole boss has recently been named as a substitute at the age of 38, as Goole look to haul themselves away from the wrong end of the Evo-Stik North table.

There could be more familiar faces to the Flamingo Land Stadium crowd, as another former Scarborough FC man James Dudgeon is Rose's assistant-manager and will join him on the bench.

Ex-Scarborough Athletic skipper and caretaker manager Matty Bloor is registered with Goole this season, as is Lewis Dennison, who featured for Boro last season.

Rose has also added four new players to his squad over the past few days, as Tyler Williams and Devonte Morton return to the Vikings and Piteu Crouz and Lebrun Mbeka have also put pen-to-paper.
