The Scarborough & District Minor League have taken to social media in a bid to increase participation numbers

The Scarborough & District Minor League have published a list of teams’ contact details and information in the hope of attracting new players to the league.

Due to a lack of players, the Under-13s and 15s leagues have disbanded, but players are being encouraged to play an age-group up.

Newly-elected committee member Alec Coulson said: “Some parents don’t know where to start when trying to find a team for their child. We’d like to encourage any boy or girl of any ability to get involved and try and find a team.”

The league also have a new Facebook page, search ‘Scarborough & District Minor League’ for more.
