Boro confirm pre-season schedule


Scarborough Athletic have confirmed their pre-season schedule, though boss Rudy Funk has underlined there is still time for change.

Among the fixtures will be two exciting games at Queensgate against FC United and the opener against Halifax Town of the Conference.

There are also attractive local fixtures against former rivals Bridlington Town and Pickering Town, as well as a game at Scarborough RUFC’s Silver Royd against a Saturday League representative side.

Pre-season closes on August 10 with an away game at Whitby Town.

Boro are expected to start their pre-season training campaign on July 3.

Funk said: “We have two great home fixtures, but overall it is a compact and attractive pre-season for us.

“There might be a few more clubs that we slot in there on the way, we are still in talks about that.”
