Scarborough Athletic boss John Deacey are taking up the option to extend keeper Tommy Taylor's contract at the club.

After a superb season in the Evo-Stik Premier, Deacey is making sure that Taylor is the first person, apart from the players currently on contract, to come back for the 2019-20 campaign.

The players that are already tied down for next season are skipper Michael Coulson, Wayne Brooksby and Jack Johnson.

He said: "Tommy is a great lad, he's somebody that we want around the club. Taking up the option on him was a no brainer.

"His attitude both on and off the park is superb.

"He has a real affinity to Scarborough Athletic. All you had to do is watch him after the cup final win when he went straight to the supporters."
