Who Is Sean Newton?

The Imps have signed Stockport County and former Chester City, Barrow and AFC Telford, left-back Sean Newton today. The former fans favourite will be a big hit with the Imps faithful, as he gets up and down the line like a bull through a china shop, a veritable Newton’s cradle of energy that dispenses the theory of relativity to full-backs and wingers left in his wake.

Sean has phenomenal pace and takes a great free-kick, scoring 5 times for The Hatters last season.  He does get some goals for a full-back as well, 6 last season as well as netting 12 in 109 aps for Telford before going on loan and, eventually becoming a permanent signing last summer.

Still only 24, Sean is an inspirational lad and just makes Simmo’s height criteria at 6′ 2″. Sean scored 6 goals and laid on 6 assists last season, firing off 49 shots from a left-foot cannon.  His tackling and shadowing are first rate, with just two yellow cards in his 44 appearances last term. He is infectious lad, on and off the field, who will build morale no end, to become one of the leaders we will need all over the park this season

Welcome aboard Sean,
