Boro are potentially only the second team capable of recording a home and away double against the Holy Blues, having defeated us earlier in the season by two goals to nil at the Northolme. Matlock being the only side to record wins home and away, when they beat us 3-0 at Causeway Lane back on August Bank Holiday Monday, before coming from behind to earn a 2-1 win last month.

Two wins and three draws have made up Boro’s last six games, including goal-less draws away at Ashton United and at home to Matlock. Since the turn of the year, Scarborough have beaten Basford, Buxton and Grantham before drawing with Hyde. A victory over Whitby in early February was then followed by three home draws, against FC United, and the aforementioned Matlock and Ashton ahead of Easter Saturday’s meeting between the Seadogs and the Holy Blues.

Managed by former Manchester United and Middlesbrough player, Jonathan Greening, Scarborough have climbed into the final play-off spot, with a three-point cushion over sixth placed Bamber Bridge, The Seadogs have picked up 31 points from their nineteen home games, a steady return, comparable to that of their away form. Making for a solid season for the North Yorkshire outfit.

The third highest average attendances in the PitchingIn Northern Premier League, with an average crowd of 1,100 and with Easter traffic expected, longer than normal delays are expected on the way into Scarborough, so please add time to your journey to avoid missing kick off. On the injury front, a handful of those that missed out on the Holy Blues’ win over Mickleover, are in contention for places in Tom Shaw’s thoughts, having successfully come through a positive Thursday night training session. The last time the two sides met at Flamingo Land Stadium was back in November 2018, when Trinity were victorious by two goals to nil. Simon Russell and Ashley Worsfold the scorers in front of 1,096 spectators.
