Irish wing-ace Martin Russell is the latest player to book his place in your all-time Scarborough XI.

Russell was a major figure for Scarborough FC in the late 80s and early 90s and he will be fondly remembered for scoring the winning goal in the 3-2 League Cup win against Chelsea.

Boro paid their highest ever transfer fee of £102,000 to Leicester City for the player.

Now it is time to cast your mind back over the years to think of your two central midfielders.
