Simpson Chose Imps Over 2 Roles For Love Of The Fans
Gary Simpson has been a breath of fresh air at Lincoln City since notching a mind numbing 17 points with the goalposts moving by another point for Saturday. Yet in an incredible twist of fate he could have taken over the job at Stockport, the side currently occupying the final position in the bottom four.

Gary’s deep understanding of Impdom and his desire to give the fans the success their loyalty and passion deserve, led to him not putting in his CV as Darije Kalezić got the job unopposed. Despite his strong Cheshire connections, there was only one mission. Simmo also turned down the chance to join a good mate, who moved between two League clubs, just as he received his Imp calling. Sometimes you keep the faith and have to wait for the football fates, in order to start a project that will hopefully see Simmo fulfil a life ambition.
Stockport travel to Kidderminster tomorrow hoping for an inspiring win if they are to have any chance of overhauling Tamworth, Gateshead or Lincoln City, in order to stay in the BSP. We at STMI do hope they can avoid the drop, but naturally not at our expense. The sage in Simmo is mindful that our superior goal difference, 4 goals, can be wiped out by the footballing fates, but results elsewhere will also have to go against us. Gateshead will fancy Ebbsfleet and Tamworth should beat Woking, suggesting Simmo’s loyalty will be tested until the final whistle on the last day of the season.
But Simmo will be well backed by the Hordes of Impdom, set to take between 700 and 1,000 to Hyde tomorrow. That is magnificent support following on from the huge numbers that went to Nuneaton and Alfreton. Crowds are also close to the 3,000 barrier at the Bank as the belief returns. That is outstanding support, something Simmo knows will be the linchpin to him hopefully opening a bottle of Magners and toasting a job well done on Saturday night.
