Darren France has said a huge thank you to the fans after leaving his role as assistant-manager of Scarborough Athletic.

France originally joined the club alongside his dad Brian when Boro was formed in 2007.

He has helped to oversee plenty of success at Queensgate, including two promotions from the NCEL first division and Premier.

But after plenty of deliberation, the former Hull City striker has opted to follow fellow coach John Reed through the Boro exit door.

“I would just like to say a massive thank you to the fans of Scarborough Athletic,” he said.

“These fans are unbelievable, they have done so much for me and my family over the years, I have absolutely loved my time at the club.

“I have spent a lot of time thinking about things though, and as much as it hurts me, I have decided to leave the club.

“My decision is due to football reasons and to spend time with my family. At the moment though I don’t want to go into details.

“I wish the club the best for the future and hope they get a result in the big game against Telford on Saturday.”
