Rudy Funk ended his tenure as manager of Scarborough Athletic after Monday night’s 3-0 defeat at Harrogate Railway.

Funk, who took charge in April of 2011, called time after the defeat, citing non-football reasons for his decision.

He strode from the pitch at the end of the Evo-Stik North game, handing his Boro scalf and tie to supporters.

The club are expected to release a statement on Wednesday to reveal the ins and outs of Funk’s exit.

During his time in charge, Boro played a total of 179 games. They won 94, drew 35 and lost 50, he had a win rate of 52.5 per cent.

It is as yet unknown who will take charge of Saturday’s game at home to Northwich, though assistant managers Bryan Hughes and Paul Foot look likely to lead the team out.
