SCARBOROUGH Athletic’s new boss Rudy Funk has promised that things will get so much better.

Boro were taken apart on Saturday afternoon as a Pickering team packed full of Scarborough-based players comfortably stormed to a 5-0 Northern Counties East League Premier division success at a packed Mill Lane.

All five goals were scored by products of the old Scarborough FC school of excellence, with Nathan Cook, son of Pikes boss Mitch, netting twice, with Ged Dalton, Josh Greening and Billy Logan also on target.

Funk, who was confirmed as manager on Thursday night, was disappointed with the result, but he is expecting more in the not too distant future.

Funk said: “The fans were the opposite of the players, they showed passion and belief, they were incredible. This came after such a bad performance.

“I do take full responsibility for the performance, there is only one man to blame.

“One thing I can promise, you will not be disappointed next season.

“I ask the fans to support us until the end of the season and to keep the faith.

“I would like to meet every one of the supporters because I do believe that working as a unit will get Scarborough Athletic where they want to be.

“At any point the fans should feel free to to tell me what they think because any input will help.

“I need to gather as much information as possible to help make the club bigger and stronger, not for the future, but for next season.”
