Boro sign Roma and Green ahead of Lancaster trip
Scarborough Athletic are pleased to announce the signings of defender Dominic Roma and goalkeeper Joe Green ahead of the trip to Lancaster City.
Roma joins Steve Kittrick’s side following his recent resignation as boss at National League North side Gainsborough Trinity. Appointed in caretaker charge in March 2016, Roma kept Gainsborough in the National League North last season and was confirmed as the club’s permanent boss following a final day win over Bradford Park Avenue. After leaving Trinity a fortnight ago due to the juggling act of combining management with a hectic personal life, the move to Boro allows Roma to focus on playing football again.
As well as the managerial side, the 31-year-old also made over 200 appearances during his six years at Trinity, playing primarily at right-back but also across the defence when required.
Earlier in his career Roma played in the Football League for both Sheffield United and Boston United, as well as spells at Hinckley United, Tamworth, Alfreton Town and Harrogate Town.
Boro boss Kittrick was delighted to bring in the defender. He said: "Dom will bring a lot of experience to our defence and help freshen things up for us. He's turned down a number of clubs to join us and help us push on to finish the season as strongly as possible."
Goalkeeper Green comes highly rated following a short spell at NCEL sides Handsworth Parramore and Hemsworth Miners Welfare.
The 6ft 5' stopper was released by League Two outfit Newport County in the summer after making one senior appearance.
"Joe is a bright young prospect who has been recommended to us. He has had experience playing at a higher level with Newport County and will give us further cover in goal as we enter the final months of the season."
Welcome to the club Dominic and Joe!
