Stockport County, Chester City, Barrow FC  and AFC Telford left-back Sean Newton will provide Lincoln with more assists than the basket carrier at the Tower of London, during the height of Henry VIII’s cunning Reformation fundraising ruse. This peaceable piece-rate loving fellow – who just about scrapes in to Simmo’s minimum defensive height criteria at 6′ 2″ – is as brilliant as he is ebullient with a left peg prized from the lap of the gods. Perhaps even poetry in motion?

Newton is a fans favourite wherever he goes, our new Stuart Bimson, if you will. He can bring the foe to their knees and please the Sincil faithful, prising them off their pews, to ‘arghs and oohs’ as he ransacks the whites, the greens the reds, the Cods and the blues.  A veritable Newton’s cradle of energy, the busy bee gets up and down faster than a brides nightie. He is no slow-coach, dispensing justice to any encroacher who would have the audacity to  imitate a Lincolnshire poacher.

Welcome Sean Sincil salivates………………

In all seriousness and painkillers aside Sean at 24 is still coming into his peak, but what a talent going forward, the purists left back and no mistake. Now in the right side and with the right manager the shop window beckons for a player who will undoubtedly play higher in the football League.  His free-kicks will make us swoon, and he certainly gets some goals for a full-back , 6 last season as well as netting 12 in 109 outings for Telford, then under 21 and still waiting for his key to the door, he got an England C call, playing twice and scoring the once.  Stockport asked for a try before we buy loan, loved him and made him a permanent fixture last summer.

It was ambition that saw him come to us and not money. The Hatters were paying him more and wanted to keep him. Three League clubs had thrown him tentative offers of a pre-season trial but Simmo got their with first with a firm offer. The manager, the club and the potential just clicked making it impossible to turn us down.

An inspirational lad, on and off the pitch, Sean confortably qualifuies as a six-foot soldier given he is a full-back.  A look at the facts and stats below shows Sean scored 6 goals and laid on 6 official assists (he had a deal going where he was allegedly paid a bonus for 16 of them), firing off 49 shots from a left-foot long- nine cannon.  His tackling and shadowing are first rate, with just two yellow cards in his 44 appearances last term. The infectious lad will help to build TEAM LINCOLN morale no end.  He will give as good as he gets and prove to be one of the leaders we will need all over the park this season
