Message from the Board - Saturday 4 March
As one together as a club, we were utterly devastated to learn of Dave’s passing last Tuesday. His achievements at this club are unsurpassed – and they weren’t just on the field as Scarborough Athletic supporters everywhere will be aware.
Dave first began supporting the former Scarborough FC as an eight-year-old in the 1964-5 season, and continued to follow them while working in Norfolk, where he ran an educational publishing company. He became involved with the club’s Trust following the winding up order on Scarborough FC in 2007. He helped resurrect the club as Athletic in June 2007 and has been an ever-present member since.
However, Dave’s greatest achievement is his pivotal role in the construction of the new Leisure Village within Scarborough. The new stadium will be a fitting legacy to the hard work and passion Dave put into making it happen.
We use the term “Legend” all the time in football. However, as the club moves forward, Dave Holland will be worthy of the title “Legend”. Dave Holland will forever be known as “The man who took the Boro back home.”
It is now the role of every Boro fan across the world to unite, back the team, and make Dave proud.
