16 May 2019 : Fresh start after injury for all-action Simmo

Michael Ellison has every right to feel like he has completed his first new signing of the summer with the news that Michael Simpson is putting pen to paper on a new deal.

With 174 appearances already under his belt at Linnets, Simmo is one of the most familiar faces in the squad.

However, he wasn't seen on the field anywhere enough during 2018-19, having to reluctantly take on the role of spectator as his season was badly cut short by injury.

Like fellow midfielder Kyle Hamid, Simmo is looking forward to starting afresh and Runcorn's performances in midfield will be all the better for it.

The energetic player's unrelenting support of both the strikers and defence was sorely missed as he featured in less than half of the Yellow and Greens' games last term.

Simmo will also be out to improve on his 23 goals, which have included some explosive efforts from midfield or right back.

Boss Ellison said: "Simmo will be like a new signing for us this season.

"We've really missed his energy and quality in the middle of the park.

"The fact he played a number of games early on in the season with a serious injury - one which caused him a lot of pain - for me just shows the measure of the lad.

"I'm delighted he's committed for another campaign."
