Steve Kittrick has leapt straight into action after agreeing to stay on as Scarborough Athletic boss following positive talks with the club.

Kittrick, who took over in January following the sacking of Paul Foot and Bryan Hughes, had a successful meeting with chairman Dave Holland and director Geoff Osguthorpe, leaving him with his mind firmly on the task in hand.

He has already started conversations with the current members of the squad and talks are poised to happen with some new faces over the next few days.

Former Telford boss Kittrick said: “The meeting went well and now we are looking forward to the new season.

“It is all a bit up in the air at the moment because the season is finished and players are looking around.

“I’m speaking to the existing squad at the moment and I’ll be having meetings with four or five players this week.

“Shane Killock, Jamie Price and Dave Merris have already told me that they’ll be staying on for next season, I want to get a few more done now.

“I’m also hoping to have a chat with a few new players as well, but we have to make sure that we only bring in players that are right for Scarborough Athletic.”

Boro will remain in the Evo-Stik North next season where they will be joined by new sides like Tadcaster Albion, Colne, Ramsbottom, Colwyn Bay and Hyde United.

Both Northwich Victoria and Witton Albion have moved into the Evo-Stik South for the 2016/17 campaign.

Kittrick added: “Northwich and Witton were both good sides, but there will be plenty of other strong teams in the division next season.

“We just have to make sure that we are in the best position to be able to compete.”
