Midfielder Tommy Adams has said a big thank you to the fans after signing off for Scarborough Athletic and joining Pickering Town.
Rudy Funk has confirmed that Adams will be signing dual forms, so he will be allowed to turn out for Boro if needed, but due to work commitments he can’t commit on a full-time basis.
Adams played in a total of 40 matches for Boro since joining from the Pikes, scoring eight goals in the process.
He said: “I had a really good season at Scarborough, but it would have been impossible to fit my work commitments in because things are very busy at the moment.
“I had a sit down with my family and we decided that I couldn’t commit fully.
“We set out to win the league and we did just that, so I can’t complain too much.
“The fans were great, I would just like to thank them for my support during last season. At times it was tough but when these supporters are behind you they really pull you through”
Funk added: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Tommy, he has brilliant.
“He has a lot more work coming his way and he obviously has to pay the bills.
“Tommy is a committed lad, he wants to be able to give 100 per cent and we need players who can give exactly that.
“We had a good talk about it and we decided the best thing for him would be to join Pickering and sign for us on dual registration.
“he has said that he will always be available if we need him, which is fantastic news for us.”
Some good news for Boro is that Louis Horne will be back with the club next season.
Manager Funk added: “Louis was the last player we spoke to from last season’s squad and I’m delighted to confirm that he’ll be back.
“We are extremely pleased by this news because if means that we are strong all over the park.
“We are looking good in the defence, the midfield and up front, which is obviously what we were looking for.”
