Defender Stimpson leaves Boro

By Will Baines

Scarborough Athletic can confirm that defender Danny Stimpson has left the club after the win over Trafford on Saturday.

Danny joined the club in the summer, missing the early stages of pre-season through a niggling injury but coming in to the side and scooping the man of the match award on the eve of the new season against a Sheffield Wednesday Under-23s side.

A commanding central defender who is strong in the air, especially from setpieces, Stimpson made his first competitive appearance for Boro as he scored against Sheffield FC in September, retaining his place for the away game against Brighouse before he was forced off at half-time through injury.

The 27 year-old returned to the starting line-up for the away game against Whitby Town in the North Riding Senior Cup, going on to score a few days later in the 2-2 draw against the Mintcakes.

Stimpson cemented himself at centre-back alongside Sam Hewitt for November and much of December, scoring against Ossett Town in the Evo-Stik North before missing out against Hyde United on 23 December.

Since then, Stimpson has found his chances limited, making just one further start against Pickering Town in the North Riding Senior Cup before his departure at the weekend. He leaves the club having made 15 appearances.

We wish Danny the best of luck for the future and thank him for his contribution to Scarborough Athletic during our historic first season back in the town.
