Scarborough Athletic have invited former Bradford Park Avenue and Harrogate Town defender Stephen Mallory to join them for pre-season training.
Twenty-nine-year-old Mallory, who can also play in midfield, will join Boro for training, which starts on Tuesday June 30 at Hull University.
Boro joint-boss Paul Foot said: “We have asked Stephen to come down to train with us, then we can get an idea of him and he can also see if he likes our set-up.
“He has played for Harrogate Town and Bradford Park Avenue in the past, but last season he was playing in a local league in the Leeds area.”
Foot added: “We start training soon and then we also have the trial day so it is a very hectic period for myself and Bryan (Hughes) but it is also an exciting time as we prepare for our first full season as Boro joint-managers.”
