Time at Club:





Lincoln City are back in the Football League after their manager Danny Cowley led the club to the National Conference title in 2017, something he did at the first time of asking, having only landed the job in May 2016. He would go on to lead the Imps in the Football League Trophy.

Cowley also oversaw a stunning FA Cup run through to the FA Cup quarter-finals, becoming the first non-league side to achieve this feat since in over a century. The Imps dumped out top-flight Burnley, Championship sides Brighton (who went on to win promotion to the Premier League) and Ipswich, before losing to Arsenal in the last-8.

Lincoln last appeared in League Two back in 2011.

Recent Form


An unbeaten run of 5 wins versus Crawley Town, Oldham Athletic, Yeovil Town, Forest Green & Morecambe and 5 draws against Mansfield Town, Exeter City, Stevenage, Northampton Town & Notts County has seen Lincoln City produce 16 goals at an average of 1.6 and conceding 7 has also seen them gain a 9 goal difference over this period.
