Scarborough News Saturday League second division side Athletico2B have pulled out of the league due to a lack of players.

Player-manager Nick David said: “I am massively gutted about having to fold the team, but through a lack of interest and lads going elsewhere I didn’t see us been able to raise a team.”

League secretary John Orrah said: “It’s a huge shame from the league’s point of view.

“They did really well with a small squad and madethe Trophy Trader League Trophy semi-final and held their own in a competitive second division. It is also a shame for Nick David too as he did a good job running them.”

Orrah confirmed that two new sides had already applied to join the league for the 2015-16 season.
