Lincoln Striker Bid Hots Up

Former Rotherham UnitedMacclesfield Town and want away Alfreton Town striker Ben Tomlinson still looks to be on his way to Lincoln City according to sources. One bid had been refused, last month but it would appear the player wants to work with Simmo again, suggesting a compromise deal could be in the offing. The lad is under contract so this cannot go to tribunal.  The Lincoln board have also upped Simmo’s budget and the understanding is that he has funds spare.

The goal machine scored for fun in his Rotherham youth days before moving to Worksop where he rammed in 17 goals for starters and then 29 goals in his final season. Simmo even paid a fee to Worksop when he signed him for Macc, as did an ambitious Alfreton who swooped as The Silkmen were relegated.  He did not disappoint.

He formed a great partnership with Paul Clayton last year with 14 goals from 33 starts and 13 opportunities from the bench  But The Reds have now gone part-time to save funds. The chance to join Lincoln, resurgent and perceived challengers, as well as working with his ex-manager looks a tempting proposition for the lad if what went off on twitter earlier today is anything to go by. We will leave you to make your minds up on what is left on there –

STMI had no desire to jeopardise any deal when told by an agent last month and would therefore not speculate as to the name of the player when we ran our two strikers story last month. Wright has already arrived, now it looks just a question of time before Tomlinson follows.
