When Ian Beaumont took over the reins from Malcolm Cowling as Chairman of Lincoln United at the end of last season he had a number of immediate challenges to face.

First of all boss Dave Frecklington left the club after three years to further his managerial career at Spalding United.

His first job therefore the first job was to find a successor to Frecklington.

Beaumont appointed Sam Wilkinson as the new boss and brought in Chris Hall as his assistant.

Last week former player Stuart Reddington rejoined the Ashby Avenue outfit as First Team coach.

Beaumont said: ” Sam is surrounded by good people and I don’t think he can fail.

” I am really pleased Stuart has come back because he will add another dimension to the dressing room.

” Chris Hall has a wealth of experience and I am sure all three of them will do really well together especially with the people around them. ”

More good news for the new man at the top is that 90% of the players have committed for another season at the Sun Hat Villas Stadium.

Beaumont told SportsLinc: “I took the job because I want to see the club push on. I will do my best for the lads and I know everyone involved is committed.

“There are no Mr Big Timers down here. We all pull together.”
