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.”

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

“It has been a very quiet summer at Moss Rose, with all of last season’s contracted players offered deals for this season. There are some significant changes, though: star striker Kristian Dennis returned to parent club Stockport at the end of his season-loan, and has since signed for Chesterfield; and despite receiving contract offers, some of the club’s better players in the shape of keeper Shwan Jalal, captain Paul Turnbull and striker Reece Styche have all decided to move on. Manager Jon Askey is a club legend at Macclesfield and has a great knowledge of the National League. He has also added some experience to his coaching team with the appointment of ex-Newcastle player Steve Watson as assistant manager. Jack Mackreth from Tranmere is a good signing, but the squad looks short on quality and numbers.

Prediction: Mid-table.”
