Russell Slade to help Boro launch new kit

Scarborough Athletic FC will launch our new 2017/18 kit by holding a 'question and answer evening' on Saturday 17th June.

Former Scarborough FC manager Russell Slade will be taking your questions at the very first Scarborough Athletic FC event to be held at the new Scarborough Sports Village Social Bar.

When Slade arrived in November 2001 the club was adrift at the bottom of the Conference and looking doomed. His first match in charge resulted in a home win over Farnborough Town but the next three games yielded just one point. However a remarkable run of 39 points from the final 19 games of the season meant Scarborough finished 12th. He was hailed as a hero by the fans and his stock rose when taking the team to 4th position by Christmas in the 2002–03 season.

In January 2003, two days after the club went into administration, Slade tendered his resignation. The fans presented a tearful Slade with a petition at the next game and on the Monday morning he changed his mind.

The following season saw mixed league performances, but a tremendous FA Cup run which saw victories over Hinckley United, Doncaster Rovers, Port Vale, and finally Southend United following a replay, meant a glamorous home tie in front of Premier League Chelsea. Despite losing 1–0 Slade's side had put up a tremendous battle.

We request that fans send questions prior the event via the following link: 

We cannot guarantee that all questions will be asked due to time constraints. We will also ask for questions from the floor.

Entry to the event includes a complimentary drink.

Prior to the Q&A and Kit Launch fans will be invited onto the pitch for group photos. These will be sent onto fans following the event.
