Former Scarborough Athletic midfielder Dave Ricardo has taken charge at Humber Premier League side Beverley Town.

Ricardo, who pulled on a Boro shirt 13 times between 2009 and 2010, has left Hall Road Rangers to take the reins of a side that will face up to Scarborough Town next season.

Boro signed Ricardo from Bridlington Town and he left Athletic to join Rangers.

He said “I am extremely honoured to be part of the upcoming Beverley Town management team.

“With the right personnel and attitude there is no reason why we can’t challenge for the league in all three divisions, however a lot of hard work has to undertaken first during the pre season for this to become a possibility.

“Steps have been taken and are continuing to be made to ensure that players for all three teams are looked after in the best possible way in order to help the season run as smoothly and successfully as possible.”
