Scarborough Athletic manager Steve Kittrick has admitted his frustration at the lack of players at his disposal for their first pre-season clash against the Saturday League Representative side tomorrow.
Boro will be without Paul Robson and Chris Bolder for the clash at Scarborough RUFC's Silver Royd HQ, as they are both away on a coaching course, while new signing Adam Bolder is away on holiday.
Kittrick will also be without Dave Merris, Tom Morgan and Joe Lamplough, taking the tally of missing players up to six against the cream of the local crop, managed by West Pier supremo Andy Spivey.
"It's very frustrating we are missing quite a few players," said Kittrick.
"Nevertheless, we are looking forward to the game and a good afternoon of football in Scarborough."
