Scarborough Athletic’s bid to snap up Bradford City striker Adam Baker has fallen through.

Boro had hoped to bring in the youngster on a month’s loan to boost their push for promotion from the NCEL Premier, but due to league rules, the attempt has been scrapped.

Club secretary John Clarke said: “In the leagues above it is okay to bring in players on short-term deals, but clubs are unable to do it in this league.”
