Conference Premier Home Crowds 2014/15

We thought we would miss Luton Town but Bristol Rovers, Wrexham FC, Grimsby Town, Chester City and Lincoln fans take a bow! Although Torquay United, Aldershot Town and Forest Green Rovers sit not too far behind. Welcome to the first Vanarama Conference attendance of the 2014/15 season

What a healthy set of statistics we have after 5 games with Bristol Rovers against Grimsby attracting 7,019, Wrexham attracting 4,068 against Gateshead and FGR enjoying a bumper 3,781 for the West Country derby against Bristol Rovers. The Mariners managed 3,710 at home to Nuneaton but the Imps look likely get into the top two when they entertain the Mariners early next month. Grimsby look set to bring 1800 and, with both the Lincolnshire giants flying a massive crowd is assured.

The People’s Premiership may not have the cash of the top tier but you can get a ticket and experience traditional football full of thrills and spills in the flesh. So to cut to the chase then fellow football fans.

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. 

Thank-you for reading by Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

 

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

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.

Who Is Sean Newton?

The Imps have signed Stockport County and former Chester City, Barrow and AFC Telford, left-back Sean Newton today. The former fans favourite will be a big hit with the Imps faithful, as he gets up and down the line like a bull through a china shop, a veritable Newton’s cradle of energy that dispenses the theory of relativity to full-backs and wingers left in his wake.

Sean has phenomenal pace and takes a great free-kick, scoring 5 times for The Hatters last season.  He does get some goals for a full-back as well, 6 last season as well as netting 12 in 109 aps for Telford before going on loan and, eventually becoming a permanent signing last summer.

Still only 24, Sean is an inspirational lad and just makes Simmo’s height criteria at 6′ 2″. Sean scored 6 goals and laid on 6 assists last season, firing off 49 shots from a left-foot cannon.  His tackling and shadowing are first rate, with just two yellow cards in his 44 appearances last term. He is infectious lad, on and off the field, who will build morale no end, to become one of the leaders we will need all over the park this season

Welcome aboard Sean,
