No rest for Boro manager Olsson

SATURDAY’S NCEL Premier postponement at Dinnington proved to be a double-edged sword for Scarborough Athletic boss Paul Olsson.

Olsson was keen for his players to bounce back from the midweek loss at Nostell, but when news of the frozen pitch came in it presented the Boro boss with the chance to watch a few potential targets.

He was out on the road on Saturday to take in a game and he did the same on Sunday as he bids to boost his squad.

Olsson was keen to run the rule over these players, as he only wants to add better players to his squad, rather than bringing new signings in for the sake of it.

He said: “I have had a few players recommended to me, so it was the perfect chance to take in a game or two and get some of these lads watched.

“We do have plenty of irons in the fire, we are working hard to improve things.

“Obviously we wanted to get back into action and put Tuesday night’s defeat behind us.

“The lads were all up for the game, so it is a blow when it is called off.

“We do have a big game tomorrow night now though, when we play host to Tadcaster.

“A lot of the lads from both sides know each other so it should be an interesting one.

“For us it is all about those three points in every game we play.

“We are not changing our aims, we want to finish as high up the table as we can, and I still think we can get right in there.”
