Two in, two out as Tilson tinkers with his team

Transfer deadline day proved to be a day of much upheaval at Lincoln City, as three signed deals at Sincil Bank and two left the club—including long-serving club captain Scott Kerr.

Kerr, who fell one appearance short of 250 appearances for the Imps, left the club to sign a deal at Blue Square Premier side York City. He was a fans favourite at Sincil Bank and won the Player of the Year award in 2009 for his tenacious midfield performances.

Defender Moses Swaibu has also left the club. The former Crystal Palace player made 63 appearances for City during a two-year stay, but has fallen down the pecking order in recent weeks as manager Steve Tilson looks to rebuild his squad.

Despite the departures of Kerr and Swaibu, Tilson has added to his squad. Former Southend striker Scott Spencer has finalised his move to City, signing a deal until the end of the season, with the option of an extra year.

Spencer will be familiar with Tilson’s managerial style having played under him during his time at Southend. As well as his time at the Shrimpers, the former Everton youngster has also played football at Macclesfield and Rochdale. He will wear the number 39 shirt for the Imps.

Ex-Millwall midfielder Ali Fuseini has also put pen to paper on a deal at Lincoln City. The Ghanaian made 76 appearances in a four-year spell at The New Den but was released in the summer of 2010. He has most recently been playing for Lewes in the Blue Square South but will wear the number 31 shirt for City.

Arsenal defender Gavin Hoyte has also agreed to extend his loan deal from the Emirates until the end of the season. Hoyte has played 11 times for City since agreeing the inital loan deal back in October last year.

Fuseini and Spencer will join Hoyte in the Lincoln City squad that takes on Bradford City at Valley Parade on Tuesday evening.
