Whitby Town have announced that Jimmy Beadle has rejoined the club from Scarborough Athletic.

Beadle departed Scarborough earlier this week.

The Scarborough News reported that the midfielder had grown tired of waiting for opportunities under boss Steve Kittrick, and having been an unused sub in the last four games, decided to move on.

He told the paper: “I have to leave the club, I’m not going to get the opportunities under the current manager.

“I barely got any playing time in pre-season, the most I got was 55 minutes, and I’d worked harder than ever before in pre-season and feel in great shape.”

This switch to Whitby marks a return to familiar territory for the former Seasiders player.
