Tom Morgan bids fond farewell to Boro

Player/goalkeeper coach Tom Morgan has left Scarborough Athletic after four years at the club.

The keeper, who signed from Farsley and spent two spells at Boro, has opted to leave due to work and family commitments.
Morgan was a very popular figure at the Flamingo Land Stadium, playing his part both on and off the pitch.
He said: "It has been a decision that I have found really tough as the past four years have been full of really fond memories, not just on but also off the pitch. 
"I am a podiatrist, I work for the NHS in Bradford as part of the specialist woundcare team and also I have my own private business," which over the past year has really taken off. 
I have a young family as well, so trying to juggle my work and homelife with commuting for Scarborough Athletic duties from my home in Brighouse has become increasingly difficult and unfortunately something has got to give.
"During this Lockdown period we have not stopped at work and currently we have no end game in sight. 
"However one positive is I have been able to spend more time with my family, therefore I have made the decision to leave and find a club closer to home.
"I want to thank everyone at the club, from all the members of the board to all the volunteers, who have made me feel so welcome from day dot. 
"I want to say a special thankyou to the fans  - once a seadog always a seadog!! "I hope you all keep getting behind Darren Kelly and the team, play your part by supporting them in the special way you do. Keep pushing the club back to where it belongs.
"I hope one day our paths will cross again. All the best for the future."
Boss Kelly added: "Morgs has been brilliant for this club. Since I have taken over as manager he has been hugely helpful, especially with his work with Tommy Taylor.
"His work with the NHS is inspiring, obviously that and his young family has to take priority.
"I can't thank him enough and I want to underline that the door is always open for him."
