It was just in time for a move to Kidderminster Harriers. Danny Lloyd, Andy Boyce and others have wished him well on twitter.
Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs.
With 10 months plus the months notice left on his current deal it would be interesting to know how much the compromise agreement has cost the club. Has it paved the way for him to accept a lower deal elsewhere or will the last minute deal benefit the Imps as he joins the Harriers along with Midfielder Manny Panther? At 28 he is entering the peak of his career. his infectious enthusiasm will be sure to raise everybody’s game at the BSP basement club who are lucky to have a decent guy.
A quick STMI Biopic
Josh’s career at the Cherries was almost over before it gained momentum, as he sustained a serious knee injury in the first minute of a game at Brentford. The ligament damage would keep him out for the season. Typically he battled back, making 30 often towering appearances. He is brave and gives and asks no quarter. Carlisle snapped him up on a two year deal but loaned him to Hereford where he played like a bull in a china shop before Mark Stimpson took a chance with a loan deal. The Gills gave him a permanent deal as he became one of the few heroes in a season of turmoil that saw the Gills drop to League 2. Despite being half-way through a two year deal he agreed to join the Imps on a two year tenure.
