Cambridge & Stevenage Pip Imps For Captain Cod & Macc Man
Gary Simpson has been pipped by Stevenage FC and Cambridge United, thwarting a raid on Grimsby Town for their ex-captain, as well as another Macclesfield Town star it has emerged. Despite the signing of Brown and Miller his search for defenders continues, with Boyce still trying for a gold laden gig at Mansfield Town or Scunthorpe United it would seem.

Seasoned 29 year-old Ian Miller captained the Fishy foe to fourth. He is a no nonsense central defender, but he can also play at right-back, which may come in useful with Jonathan Thorpe leaving the Abbey. That said the 20-year-old was never first choice and spent last spring on loan at Tamworth and is considering going part-time as he looks to get a University degree. Miller’s decision to return to his roots and link up with old pal Jez George must also have been down to financial reasons, given he will have to move house, in order to fulfil a two year deal. Cambridge are spending some money again this year and look to be a threat with the best part of a new team already aboard.
Stevenage pipped us to Sam Wedgbury, who would have completed our midfield and made it one of the best in the division. Although employed as a right midfielder last season under King, Simmo also played him as a defensive midfielder. Sam shields the back four on his own or as part of a duo, with an engine that allows the creative midfielders to flow. That is not to say he cannot thread a pass or deliver a decent set-piece. This is a cracking signing for Stevenage, Sam, still just 23, will easily step up to League 1 and has it in him to play in the Championship in the next year or so.
