Tilson wants Imps job

4 Oct

Shrimpers legend Steve Tilson has spoken of his frustration at being denied a route back into football by Southend’s financial problems.
The former Blues boss, who took Southend to two successive promotions between 2004 and 2006, was put on gardening leave in July to make way for Paul Sturrock.
He is interested in the vacant position at Lincoln City and wants to get back into football, but his contract still has not been settled by Southend United three months on.
Tilson is owed wages by Blues despite not being able to get another job, a shocking way to treat a club legend.
Tilson spoke to the Lincolnshire Echo ahead of Southend’s 1-0 win over the Imps on Saturday.
He said: “I’m looking to get back into to football, but I’m trying to sort out my situation with Southend.
“I’m not really sure with the situation I’m in.
“When you are on gardening leave you’re not meant to go for a job.”
