Ex Imp On Bench For Macc Attack At Shrimpers

Last updated : 25 January 2011 By Neil Hobbs

Macclesfield Town Manager Gary Simpson is set to sensationally name Simon Yeo on the bench against his old adversaries Southend United at Roots Hall tonight.  


Silkmen striker Ricky Sappleton has however arrived back from a family funeral in Jamaica and may block an incredible return to League Football action for now for the Help for Heroes talisman who last played in the League away at old club Chester on 11/4/2009. Simon's last goal was against Notts County in another amazing twist of irony.


Simon scored 59 League goals in 141 starts and 89 substitute appearances including a 23 goal haul in 2004/5 the year the Imps lost 0-2 to Southend in the playoff final.  He never managed a goal against Steve Tilson's old club that season but you would never underestimate a 38 year old who is optimism and belief personified.
