Scarborough Athletic boss Steve Kittrick is still eyeing the prospect of Evo-Stik Premier football for when the club step back into town this summer.

Boro currently sit 11th in the Evo-Stik North table after a mixed beginning to the campaign.

Their opening few months to the season have been hampered by injuries to key players, though Kittrick is still feeling positive about a successful term.

“Our aim has always been to start the new season in our new ground in the Evo-Stik Premier, that hasn’t changed.

“We have been hit by a number of nasty injuries, which hasn’t helped us at all.

“People have said to me that we are a different team to the one we were in pre-season, but when you lose the amount of players we have, that is always going to be the case.

“This isn’t an easy league to get out of because of the quality players filtering down to this level.

“There is a lot of money about and there are a lot of teams that want to get the ball down and play football.

“The clubs paying the money will always be up there, it is up to us to keep our heads down to try and compete with them.

“There is plenty of football to be played and plenty of points to pick up, we need to start doing that now.

“I’m not a Rudy Funk, I don’t run around and dive into the crowd, but I want to win matches for this club.

“The fans have their part to play as well, the lads really respect what they do and the travelling they do.

“Crowds have dropped off a little so far this season, but I’d love it if we could have that last push in Brid before our return to Scarborough.”
