Hallelujah Saviour Simmo Returns
Gary Simpson has been tasked to Save The Mighty Imps from oblivion. Stirred by passion and motivated by the memories of Keith Alexander and Richard Butcher, he wants to finish what he and Keith started. Then it was a return from the abyss of admin, now it is to throw off the threat of the Blue Square North and to dare to dream again.
Gary will be given the job initially until the end of the season and he has one objective – to keep us up. Vice Chairman David Parnam and David Featherstone had been quick to act with a meeting last Monday, the day after the sacking of David Holdsworth. Clearly time was of the essence with Gary taking notes at the Barrow game, incognito, in of all places the away end with the Barrow fans.
The board have also made funds available, enabling the manager to get his little black book out, with a view to signing some loan players. No one is under any illusions that this is a vital next few weeks if there is any chance of a medium and long-term future for the club. Save The Mighty Imps urge all Imps to get to the home game against Southport on March 9th to boost the war chest Remember every 1,000 on the gate puts £12,000 straight into the club’s bank account.
We welcome Gary back home, we know he will feel every emotion just as much as we do. This is for Keith, this is for Richard Butcher and this is for every fan and citizen of our proud City. Gary knows the potential of this football club and will not rest until we are back where we belong. First survival, then find the talent and then build the warchest backed by the turnstile clicks of the faithful. From what may appear to be ashes and ruins, there is a strong beating heart, that is far more than the flagging pulse people perceive.
Like Murphy, he has mud in his studs and Imp blood running through his veins. Polish your horns, rally to the war cry
