Scarborough on the charge against Driffield today

Scarborough appeared far from prepared for the season ahead as their mixed ability team were thrashed 46-0 in final pre-season warm-up at Silver Royd this afternoon.

With many of all of their ‘imports’ including skipper Matty Jones yet to arrive and several first teamers from last season injured or still on holiday, the Seasiders fielded a makeshift squad and were found wanting by their North One opponents Driffield.

An unfamiliar looking Scarborough pack held their own until they ran out of steam and the visiting back division cashed in with a hatful of tries late in the game.

Scarborough won both of their pre-season games against the same opposition prior to last season and with four difficult league games to come before the arrival of Jones on the 27th of September they could struggle next month.
