Who are ya!?

Lincoln City Football Club is an association football club based in the city of Lincoln, Lincolnshire. The club participates in League Two, the fourth tier of English football, after winning the 2016-17 National League title.

Traditionally they play in red and white striped shirts with black shorts and red and white socks. Their most recent championship win was the Football Conference, is the 2016/2017 season that also saw the Imps go through to the quarter finals in the FA Cup. The 1987–88 conference winning season saw the club set an all-time record attendance for a Conference match, attracting 9,432 spectators in a 2–0 win against Wycombe Wanderers, on 2 May 1988, the last game of the season (this record has since been broken by Oxford United). The game also decided the championship, as beforehand Lincoln had not occupied the top spot at any point in the season.

The club’s highest-ever position is fifth in the Second Division in 1901–02. They have not been higher than the third tier since 1960–61, and they hold the record for the most demotions from the League (five, in 1908, 1911, 1920, 1987 and 2011 – though in all but the last case, they returned to the League the following season).

After reaching the last 16 in the FA Cup three times, Lincoln managed to win and progress to the quarter-finals on the fourth attempt, when on 18 February 2017 they became the first non-Football League side since Queens Park Rangers in 1914 — and first outright since the non-league became feeder to the League — to reach the Quarter Finals, registering a 1–0 victory over the Premier League’s Burnley.Their best performance in the League Cupcame in 1967–68, when they reached the fourth round before losing 0–3 at home to Derby County in a replay.

Lincoln reached the play-offs of the Third Division/League Two in five consecutive seasons, from 2002–03 to 2006–07, losing in the final twice (2002–03 and 2004–05) and the semi-finals three times. This failure to succeed in five consecutive play-off competitions is also a record.

Ground – The club plays at the 10,120-capacity Sincil Bank.
