Scarborough Athletic boss Rudy Funk is looking forward to heading back to his former club Rainworth on Tuesday night.

Funk, who leads out Boro in a pre-season friendly, spent a number of successful seasons at Rainworth, with one of the highlights being when they booked promotion from the NCEL Premier in the 2009-2010 campaign.

“Rainworth is my ex-club and after two years of exile I’m going back for the first time, I’m looking forward to it.

“I had some tremendous times down at Rainworth and those times are something I’m trying to emulate at Scarborough.”

Boro close the week on Saturday with an interesting derby battle against Whitby Town at the Turnbull Ground.

Whitby lost their opening outing of pre-season by a 2-0 scoreline against Darlington last weekend.
