19 Jun 2018 : Simmo brings staying power to Runcorn Linnets

THE Linnets faithful can carry on singing one of their favourite songs!

'We've got Michael Simpson' became one of the signature tunes last season in recognition of the workaholic midfielder's efforts.

The good news is Simmo has agreed terms for next season and fans will be again be able to belt out the vocal tribute to their hearts' content.

Simmo is another player with a good EVO-STIK League pedigree, having served Skelmersdale United in two spells as well as Prescot Cables from where he rejoined Linnets in December 2016.

Now in his third spell with the Linnets, Simmo is the real driving force of the team in central midfield with his speed and zest.

He also possesses a lethal shot from distance.

'Simmo contributes great energy to the team,' said manager Michael Ellison.

'I was fortunate enough to be able to bring him back to the Linnets early in my time as manager and he has been a brilliant signing for me.

'He has the ability to cover a lot of ground quickly both in attack and defence and the beauty with Simmo is that he just keeps going for a full 90 minutes.

'As a few clubs have learned over the years, he has quite a shot in his armoury too.'
