Lincoln City boss disappointed by Scott Loach sell-on windfall
David Holdsworth could not hide his disappointment at missing out on a major cash windfall following Scott Loach's cut price move to Ipswich.
Lincoln were due 15 per cent of the Watford goalkeeper's move to the Tractor Boys as part of a sell-on clause which took him to the Hornets in 2006.
The Imps were hoping to bank a five-figure sum from the deal with the former Centre of Excellence star tipped to move for up to £1m despite having a year left on his contract.
But the club was stunned to learn the former England under-21 stopper had joined for less than £200,000 with the Imps now expected to bank £20,000 as a result.
"Ipswich have certainly got themselves a bargain, there is no doubt about that," he said.
"I think everybody at the football club was hoping Scott would move for a significant fee.
"I would have put Joe Anyon in that price bracket so it's certainly a strange one.
"But there is not much we can do about it.
"Whatever the club can give me would certainly be a help, but everyone knows our situation.
"Whatever I get I will be grateful."
