Lincoln boss Steve Tilson rues Scott Lindsey departure

Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson says he was disappointed to see first-team coach Scott Lindsey leave the club.

Lindsey left by mutual consent as the Imps sought to cut budgets in the wake of relegation from League Two.

Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire: "I've known Scott for some time. He's good at what he does but for financial reasons the club have had to let him go.

"He's a good coach, he's got bags of enthusiasm and he's someone I'd love to have kept so it's disappointing."

Lindsey was brought to Sincil Bank by former boss Chris Sutton and, after a spell as caretaker manager following Sutton's resignation, was kept on by Tilson, who was a team-mate of Lindsey's at non-league Canvey Island.

Tilson hinted that further departures among his backroom staff could follow as Lincoln look to claw back an estimated shortfall of £500,000 in lost revenue.

He added: "But for the financial situation, Scott would still be here with us, but alongside him there are a few others who might lose their jobs."
