“To be involved in professional sport you need a degree, so it is great to be able to do it with Steve Brennan and the Scarborough Football Scholarship.”
Scholarship manager Steve Brennan added: “It is great to be able to help somebody who has been in the professional game, also somebody from Scarborough who wants to continue moving forward.
