Darren Kelly confirmed as new Scarborough Athletic manager

Congratulations to Sports Careers Agency Client Darren Kelly who has been given the top job at Scarborough Athletic.

Kelly, who has managed Oldham Athletic, Halifax Town and Hyde United, is overjoyed at being given the opportunity to take the reins at Boro.

He said: "Firstly, I would like to thank the Scarborough Athletic board for this amazing opportunity, but obviously it is sad that a manager has lost his job.

"For me, all you have to do is look at the history of football in Scarborough to see how big a job this is.

"I played for Scarborough during their time at Bridlington and I got a taste of the passion that the fans have for the club.

"I love the challenge of being able to build something very successful.

"It will take time to implement how I work, but I believe that we can create something big.

"If we can get a few hundred back onto the gate and fans continue to come to watch, then in the next few years I don't see why we can't be pushing to be in the National League.

"I want the Scarborough to become a fortress. When I came here before as a manager I never really felt that.

"I want opposition players to be worried when they come to Scarborough because they'll know they are up against a well organised, fit team and a hostile crowd that backs the team 100%."
