Former Manchester United and Middlesbrough midfielder Greening has been impressed by his players since their return to training, with the new signings fitting in well with the squad. He said: “We’ve started early, and the boys look in really good shape ahead of the new season. “There’s been a great attitude amongst the squad, and the new faces have been a great addition for us. Sign up to our daily The Scarborough News Today newsletter“I’ve been after Jake (Charles) for quite a while, and I’ve always been a fan of Dom (Tear) so to get them into the squad is great news. “Defender Kieran (Burton) has a lot of potential, in what will have to be a bigger squad, but the players will have to be on their toes and ready for the challenge.”One of the vacant positions in Greening’s side is in goal and the former Nottingham Forest and Fulham player confirmed that he has his number one goalkeeping target over the line and that he will be announced on August 1. He added: “We are delighted to get him over line, especially with him coming from a League Two side and I’m sure that the fans will be pleased.
