Whitby Town & Scarborough Lose League Points

Scarborough Athletic

Published at 11:07am 26th March 2019. (Updated at 11:13am 26th March 2019)

Whitby Town and Scarborough Athletic have each been deducted 6 points in the Evo-stik Northern Premier League with Scarborough now finding themselves 7 points outside the playoffs.

The Evo-Stik Northern Premier League last night confirmed that all points gained this season in matches with North Ferriby United have been void. This follows the East Yorkshire club folding recently. 

Both Whitby Town and Scarborough have beaten North Ferriby United twice each this season, meaning a loss of six points for each club. With Whitby in mid-table, it shouldn't impact their season too much, but Scarborough have seen themselves slip further away from the playoffs, with rivals Buxton only losing one point. 

Scarborough's 1-0 defeat away at Buxton on Saturday couldn't have been timed worse, with the Derbyshire club now taking the final playoff place, seven points ahead of Boro. 

Scarborough do have a game in hand with six league games remaining of the season.
