Sean Newton showed just why Lincoln City need to get him signed up to a new contract with a hat-trick against Alfreton Town last night. Indeed in the two FA games he waded in with four goals plus an assist as his form continues to get better and better. Stockport County fans were gutted when Simmo picked the bones of their relegated side two years ago. The Hatters had honed him to England C standard.

The risk is that he will go for peanuts in the January window or for free in the summer. Class left-backs have been few and far between at Lincoln and Newton’s assist rate has been second to none ever since he went to Stockport, becoming the Captain and an intrinsic part of the team. He left them for free upon relegation to join the Imps, who are risking the same after failing to deliver a new deal in the summer.
Newton has scored ten goals in sixty-nine appearances for the Imps with a trademark free-kick and is unplayable on the counter week in week out. Not a bad return for a full-back, but then he has also pitched in with 8 assists this season and 17 last, in league and cup competitions.
