Imps Sign 20-Goal Striker!

Former Mansfield Town, Bristol City, Northampton Town, Kidderminster Harriers and Tamworth left sided forward  Nick Wright has sensationally signed for Simmo’s Six-foot Sincil Soldiers on a one-year deal. The wide-boy goal machine should send season ticket sales sailing past the 1,100-1200 mark in his own right, but he is not the target man we seek….  suggesting another –  rumouredpaid for -striker is also close to signing! But Nick could still bag 20 in his own right, not seen hereabouts since Simon Yeo, in what seems the days of Yore!

Simmo has finally bagged his man after chasing the lad since we ran the who is Nick Wright story back on May 4th – just after Cox incredibly deemed Wright wrong for League 2. Simmo’s interest cooled when a move to the Harriers  came into the equation, but after waiting in the wings, he swooped for what has to be regarded as something of a coup. Left out by Cox who had Green, Nick was the fastest player at the Stags to the frustration of a true goal machine. At 6’3″ he has it all, with a turn of pace that will roast most of the Conference’s big old oaks.

Nick bagged 17 goals in all competitions playing on the left for Kidderminster, suggesting he could be both poacher and gamekeeper for the Imps. Simmo likes a front 3, but has a penchant for the continental 4-2-3-1 formation where two defensive midfielders allow those in front to fly freely.

The understanding is that another out-and-out centre forward is still on the verge of joining once a fee can be thrashed out with another BSP club.

Brilliant signing welcome aboard Nick!……….Oh Nicky Wright! Wright! Wright!
