Newtons Neutron Bombs Primed

New Imps hero and former Stockport County, Chester City, Barrow FC  and AFC Telford left-back Sean Newton has stormed into enemy territory down the left flank so far this season including a match winning display against Forest Green Rovers. Our flying full-back also delivers payloads every bit as devastating as The Lancasters of bomber county did more than half a century ago.

Sean supplied the assists for both of Waide Fairhurst’s goal in the 2-1 win over Rovers but he has been a massive part of the team in every game this season. Newton bombs up and down the line throughout a game but  it is the accuracy of his nukes that ensure he bags half a dozen goals each season with almost treble that in assists. He even asked for an assist bonus when he negotiated his deal.

Another perhaps even more devastating Newton nuke is his hay-maker free-kicks. We saw it in action in the final minute against Boston when his 25 yarder settled the game with aplomb.  Hopefully he will get one within range today. His two assists so far this season are a just reward for his forward flair,but, it is his desire not to get beat that also inspires his team-mates. Newts looks beaten only to come back at his man and nick it at the expense of a throw, a corner, or even a canter down the flank to start a counter.

Newton epitomises the all-for-one and one-for-all spirit of  Team Lincoln with our flying fire-starter certainly stoking up the boiler as the Lincoln Loco toots its way into another station on the way to a play-off challenge.

Well played Sean I’d give you  9 out of 10 every game and you have certainly been close to adding to that Forest Green man-of-the-match award.
