Ex-Scarborough Athletic striker Tony Hackworth has signed for Pickering Town.

Hackworth joins another ex-Boro striker, Ryan Blott, in making the switch to Mill Lane after joining up in a player-coach role.

He said: "I am just delighted to be back and can't wait until we get started.

"I have been training really hard and am looking forward to meeting up with the squad again.

"You can't help but be impressed at what Paul Marshall has done they did really well last year and with the additions, this will be a squad which will be right up there challenging."
