Boro midfielder Jimmy Beadle’s goalscoring exploits have taken off since a double for Scarborough FC at Lancaster City in January 2007.

Beadle returns to the scene of that brace on Saturday when Boro look to maintain their run of four consecutive wins.

Having cut his teeth with four goals in the Conference North for Scarborough FC that season, Beadle has become a regular on the scoresheet in the years that followed.

He has already reached 12 in all competitions this time out and the raiding midfielder has lofty ambitions of topping the 25-goal mark in the remaining months of the campaign.

“I started out as a defender, but when I reached the under-19s Mitch Cook had moved me further forward into midfield,” he said.

“I scored my first goals for Scarborough FC at Lancaster and it has gone on from there.

“People say that is is one of the hardest things to do in football, but I have always had an eye for goal.

“I always get chances in games, so I’ll probably be disappointed if I don’t get to 25 this season.

“Things have helped a little with Bryan Hughes changing things a little so I am arriving later in the box. It has made me a bit harder for defenders to track.”

Beadle is also upbeat about Boro’s chance of reaching the Evo-Stik North play-offs.

He added: “We have won four games on the bounce, the way we are playing I think we have a good chance.

“We haven’t got the squad to compete with Darlington or Salford, but if we can come together with a good run of results then I think we’ll be right in there at the end of the season.”
