Scarborough Athletic midfielder Liam Ormsby has decided to keep his football brain ticking over at Harrogate Railway.

Ormsby, who picked up a horror injury in August against former club Tadcaster, has become Railway boss Paul Beesley’s assistant at the NCEL Premier club while he recovers from his broken leg.

Boro chief Kittrick is expecting Ormsby back when he is fit to play football once again.

“Liam has been told that he is going to be out for a while, which is obviously going to be frustrating for him,” said Kittrick.

“Paul asked him to help out and I thought it was a good idea. Liam has done it the right way as well, by coming to speak to me about it.

“He needs to keep his brain busy and concentrate on football, that is something he hasn’t been doing.

“He has the choice of getting frustrated in the back of our stand, shopping with his Mrs or going and playing a part at Harrogate. I know which one I’d choose.”

Kittrick has some better news on the progress of Guinean attacker Alhassane Keita.

Keita also picked up a nasty break of his leg in a pre-season game against Pickering, though he is verging on a full recovery.

Kittrick added: “We just have to manage Alhassane at the moment.

“His leg is definitely getting there, he will be doing a bit in training this week, but we don’t think he’ll be available for selection until November.

“It is a case of working through the language barrier, it is important that we don’t rush him though.

“He is desperate to play and also move over to Scarborough to live, but we have to get a few things sorted as a club first.”
