  The Season So Far

Scarborough didn't win until their seventh game of the season, 4-1 against Kettering at home.
The previous six had seen four draws and two defeats, Halifax (1-2) and Dagenham & Redbridge (0-1) being the Victors. Another draw to Farnborough (1-1) last Saturday make them the Draw specialists with five already.

Monday night saw them win 2-0 away to Telford United, putting them in 8th place but only for 24 hours as everyone else plays Tuesday.

As for Barnet, a bad defeat up at Leigh RMI (2-4) sees them in ninth place with only one win in four on their travels.

Your guess is as good as mine (probably better seeing my lowly position in the prediction league with a meagre 7 points!) as to who will win this one.

Updated 19/09/02

Danny Brown and John Doolan are likely to start away to Scarborough despite being less than 100% match fit. They both lined up in the defeat to Farnborough despite not being in peak condition and are set to keep their places. Greg Heald, Wayne Purser, Frazer Toms and Lee Flynn are at least two weeks from fitness.

Scarborough boss Russell Slade will wait until the last minute before finalising his team for the home game with Barnet. New signing Bimbo Fatokun sustained a hamstring injury in the 2-0 win at Telford. Scott Jordan is suspended while Neil Campbell, Jason Blunt and Steve Baker are doubtful.

Scarborough FC was founded in 1879 by members of the Cricket Club and played it's matches at the North Marine Cricket ground. In 1887 they moved next door to a site called the recreation Ground.

In the 1898/99 season they joined the Northern League Division 2 where they ended the first season 8th out of ten.

They moved again to land owned by the local corporation in Seamer Road, with work starting on the ground in 1898.

In February 1926 the club were fined £25.00 by the FA for making illegal payments to players. The commitee was also banned for three years. The new commitee decided to go professional and they joined the Yorkshire League playing their first match in August 1926.

After the War they played in the Scarborough and District league, then joined the Midland League the next season.

They played in the Northern Premier League from 69 to 79 coming forth in the 69/70 season, only two points off the winners.They also won the FA Trophy in 72/73, 75/76 and 76/77.

Scarborough went on to play in the Conference and were the fisrt team to win automatic promotion in 1986/87, with Barnet finishing a close second.

Their stay in the Football League was not to be a long one and in 1999 they were relegated back to the Conference, thier highest ever finish being 5th in Division 4 in 1988/89.

Back in the Conference they've finished 4th,10th, then 12th last season. With things the way they are at the moment it shows how quickly a team can plummet once league status has been lost!
