Sutton gets his man as Broughton rejoins Imps

Much-travelled forward Drewe Broughton has agreed to join Lincoln City on a one-year deal.

The former Rotherham United striker played seven times during a loan spell at Sincil Bank last season and impressed, despite failing to find the net.

The deal will not come as too much of a surprise to Lincoln fans. Broughton had been hotly tipped by onlookers to secure a permanent contract at the Imps this summer as manager Chris Sutton looks to bolster a squad which is light on strikers.

The big front man is well known on the lower league circuit and has represented 17 clubs in English football, despite still being only 31 years old. He was an unused substitute for Rotherham’s League Two play-off final defeat to Dagenham and Redbridge last weekend and Sutton will be hoping to draft in at least one more striker to partner him in the coming season.

Broughton becomes the Imps’ fourth summer signing after Josh O’Keefe, Joe Anyon, and Mustapha Carayol all penned deals with Lincoln in the last few weeks.
