Former Athletic players move on

A PAIR of former Scarborough Athletic players are on the move.

Joe Connor has made the switch from Selby Town to Barton Town, while Scott Phillips looks set to be on his way out of Barton, with Boro’s landlords Bridlington Town hunting his signature.

Phillips netted 66 goals in 124 starts for Athletic before leaving for Barton earlier this season.

Brid have put the required seven days in for the player as they bid to boost their squad following the departure of Wayne Wallace and James McGarry.

Connor meanwhile, left Boro for Selby midway through last season.He had made 17 appearances in a Boro shirt.

He will join former Pickering Town teammate Adam Russell in making the move from Selby.

Connor will be greeted by a number of familiar faces at Barton, as a host of former Boro players have made the trip south over the Humber.

Among them are wingers Ryan Morton and Mark Griffin, as well as goalkeeper Dave Bramley.
