Scarborough Athletic boss Rudy Funk has missed out on striker Bruno Holden as he bids to strengthen his team’s push for NCEL Premier glory.

Funk was keen to sign the frontman, who had been released by Worksop Town, but instead Holden opted to join Brigg Town.

The Boro boss does still have a few other irons in the fire, but he has underlined that he is more than happy with his current squad of players.

“We were in for Bruno, but he opted to move to Brigg,” said Funk.

“We have lost out on that one, but there are plenty of others in the pipeline.

“A lot of players have indicated that they want to sign for us, but you have to ask yourself why you want to change it when it is going well?

“We have a great bunch of lads, who know the job that is required so you do have to be careful.

“Ollie Ryan is set to return to the squad soon as well. He has spoken to his surgeon and we are hoping that his foot injury will be sorted so he can play. After that he will have an operation at the end of the season.”
