Simmo Researching Loan Recruits
Gary Simpson will look to loans from Middlesbrough FC, Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday, Crewe Alexandra, Huddersfield, Rotherham United and perhaps even Everton FC as and when the need arises. As expected the strict limitations with regard to the Lincoln City budget meant that Gary Simpson could not make any 11th hour signings prior to the transfer window closing at 11 PM last night.

Although a big target man to replace former sharp-shooting Sheffield Wednesday striker Vadaine Oliver, now at Crewe, is the priority, wages for a proven player would be prohibitive at in excess of a thousand a week even at Conference level. It would merely disrupt the harmony of the dressing room and chew up the slack that remains in the budget for reinforcements when the time arrives. A good STMI Crewe source alleges Simmo was at the game against Huddersfield yesterday, suggesting he has either a Terrier or Alex lad in his sights.
Gary Simpson has a wealth of contacts within both the Football League and Non-League game around the Sheffield and North-West area In the past he has used his Cheshire contacts as well as Everton FC, Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday to strengthen the Macclesfield side. Bury and Accrington could also be a source.
That said the manager, who thankfully missed out on the August Manager of the Month, must be happy with the performance of the squad and will surely keep the loan fund option open until the weather or injuries begin to bight. With Blue skies on the cards for a while yet, Yussuf raring to go and, Wright a fortnight away, the managers options seem plentiful.
