Scotimp’s Views (From Season Preview – Part 1 | Part 2):

“Former Halifax manager Neil Aspin has certainly rung the changes at the International Stadium this summer with wholesale changes and some unexpected high-profile departures. Notable leavers include strike duo James Marwood and Jon Shaw, who has surprisingly joined South Shields; goalkeeper Sam Russell has been lured back to Forest Green after a season away: now, I wonder how they did that? Gateshead fell short last season because they conceded far too many goals; an ageing defence has been replaced by a much younger one. The highly-rated Manny Smith has joined after being surprisingly released by Wrexham in May, whilst he is joined in the north-east by his team-mates from the Racecourse, Wes York and Jamal Fyfield. The respected Anthony Sweeney comes in from Carlisle to bolster the midfield. All of this could signify a change to a more basic and direct playing style, which Aspin has favoured in the past. Aspin has a very good record in non-league football and is a ‘profile’ manager; his summer activity suggests he knows exactly how to get Gateshead out of the Conference too. This is now very much his team, and his teams are usually tough to beat.

Prediction: Dangerous. Should spend the season in and around the play-off places.”

Scotimp’s Views (From Season Preview – Part 1 | Part 2):

“It is very easy to forget that Lincoln City sat 4th in the National League at the halfway point of last season. Their downward momentum from that exact point was breathtaking: only relegated sides Altrincham and Welling picked up fewer points over the second half of the season, and City picked up just 6 points from their last 10 games, the worst in the league. On that basis, they would appear prime candidates for relegation this time around, but things have changed dramatically at Sincil Bank. Lincoln have used the infusion of sustainable investment from South African director Clive Nates to secure the appointment of the much-admired management team of Danny and Nicky Cowley from Braintree Town. Add some very impressive close season signatures to that mix, and you have a Lincoln City that will present a very different proposition to the side that limped desperately to the end of last season. The trio of players signed from Cowley’s former club Braintree will provide a new engine room for the side, whilst promising young striker Jonny Margetts will be keen to show Tranmere they were wrong to release him in the summer. Perennial promotion winner Nathan Arnold has joined from Grimsby, whilst striker Adam Marriott will be desperate to regain the form that made him Cambridge City’s record goalscorer a couple of years ago. Manager Cowley has set his sights on a top ten finish, and is relishing the chance to apply his skills and methodology to a professional environment. But with the facilities and budget he now has at his disposal, he must surely be looking at a promotion challenge at the first time of asking.

Prediction: If he can do it with Braintree, he can certainly do it with Lincoln. Play-offs with a title challenge as an outside bet.”
