The highest attendance of the season (so far), 282 pre-match at Dennyfield. The two highest attendances recorded up to now both feature Scarborough Athletic. The other being 202 for the FA Vase 1st Round fixture back in October. This is also featured here (see link in red).
Lifelong "Seadog" who travels from his home in Leeds to most Scarborough Athletic away fixtures. Season ticket holder at Queensgate, he first fell in love with the club back in his childhood when he and his family used to holiday at the seaside resort. Going to his first match as a youth, he's followed Scarborough through the non league days, then onto the adventures in the Football League and back into non league.

Rudy Funk and the Scarborough Athletic players all smiles after a second half goal blitz, including a Ryan Blott hat-trick sink Thackley. The race for promotion at the summit of the NCEL Premier Division is gearing up to be one of the most exciting in years. Only second half performances from the men from the East Coast will help to keep them in the frame when the season ends on April 27th.
