Professional boxer Danny Price has become Scarborough Athletic’s latest capture.
Price, who is set for a return to the ring in October, has been using Boro’s pre-season training to boost his fitness.
Boss Rudy Funk said: “Danny has come down to join us in our training sessions and he has told me that he was surprised by how hard it actually was.
“It was great to see Danny, especially as this kind of thing I wanted to set up when I joined the club. Scarborough Athletic needs to be a big part of the community, which is exactly what we are trying to create.”
Funk joked: “If Danny doesn’t cut it for us on the pitch then he can stand next to me as my minder.”
Price turned out on the pitch against Boro last Saturday when Funk’s men beat Eastfield 5-0 in their first pre-season outing.
