FIRST TEAM Preview | Scarborough Athletic (h)
Published on  Updated on  

AS big a game as it gets at this stage of the season – four points separating fourth and ninth as the Magpies (9th, 60pts) welcome the Seadogs (7th, 63pts) to the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium for an Easter Monday clash.

The pivotal game of our season. We going to need every last supporter to make themselves heard and drive the lads on as we look to propel ourselves back into the top seven – Andy Preece

Scarborough Athletic (

  • Founded 2007 (originally 1879)
  • Manager Jonathan Greening (since May 2021)
  • This season 7th in Vanarama National League North (63pts from 42 games)

Back in September

A baffling game of football that saw the Magpies dominate early, before Scarborough rattled off three early second half goals to take the spoils – but not before Andy Preece’s men grabbed two late tallies to make it interesting at the end.
