Returning striker David Brown is hoping to land more success with Scarborough Athletic.

The 27-year-old was a part of the Boro side that stormed to the NCEL Premier Division title back in 2013-14 and he is now hungry for more success.

Since lifting that trophy, Brown has spent time at Tadcaster Albion and Ossett Town, who he struck 11 goals for last season.

He said: “It was a tough decision to leave Ossett Town, but the pull of playing for Scarborough again was just too much to turn down.

“They are one of the giants of this level of football.

“I have played for Steve Kittrick before at Guiseley.

“He gets results and tells you as it is, which is what you want.

“The fans are another reason I came back to Scarborough.

“Any footballer at this level wants to play for a club with fans like Scarborough. How many other clubs at this level have taken 800 fans to an away game.

“If you are playing for Scarborough they get behind you 100% and really stick with you.

“If you are playing for Scarborough’s opponents then it is hell, really intimidating.

“We have to create that seige mentality this season, we have to turn Queensgate into a fortress.

“It hasn’t been easy for the fans over the past few seasons because there hasn’t been a lot to shout about.

“There have been a lot of changes, but that is the nature of non-league football.

“I think that this club is going places though and I’m really looking forward to this season.”

Brown is also hoping that the fans will soon see him as a silverware talisman.

“I’m here to score goals, try and keep hold of my shirt and put a shift in for the club,” the former Bradford City, Halifax and Nottingham Forest man added.

“Hopefully I’ll be seen as a bit of a good omen. The last time I played and the team had a yellow away kit we won the league.

“If the same happens then I might be quite a popular figure.”
