Boro to feature in high profile pre-season game

Scarborough Athletic officials have accepted an offer to play a high-profile friendly during the build-up to the 2010-11 season.

Boro will travel to AFC Telford's New Bucks Head ground on either July 24 or 25 to play a new Chester City side for the inaugral Supporters Direct Shield.

Following the liquidation of Chester City FC in March, there is currently a battle going on for which group will control the Deva Stadium, as City Fans United look to get a new pheonix club up and running for next season. See here: http://www.chester-city.co.uk/latest.asp

On the same day FC United of Manchester will play AFC Telford for the Supporters Direct Cup, a competition which has run for the past eight seasons.

Details of the competition are here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supporters_Direct_Cup

More details of what is sure to be a fantastic day of supporters-run football will become available over the coming weeks.
