Alan Marriott, Neal Eardley, Phil Neale, Gareth McAuley, Trevor Peake, Glenn Cockerill and Peter Gain. Those are the seven players currently in our own ‘Hall of Fame’, the Stacey West XI.
Now, as I’ve gone 4-4-2, we’re going to need a couple of wide players. I’m not too hung up on left or right, after all wingers switch flanks often and an ability to cut inside or out is a deadly weapon.
We’re going to do this is the usual way, I collected the nominations, give you a bio on each of them and then you get the final vote. However, I’ve previously taken the nominations on Twitter, this time you can do it here too.
It's time to vote for the best wingers you've seen at City. I fear three into two doesn't go, but we'll see.
Please nominate by replying to this Tweet. We're not too hung up on left or right, just the best two wingers you've seen play for Lincoln.

Because of the numerous Facebook outlets I can’t accept nominations there, but if you don’t do Twitter, you can comment the player you’d like to nominate below on this article. All eras are considered but please remember the voting is very much related to the age of the reader. Very few have talked about Roger Holmes as being in the side but, if this vote were thirty years ago, he would surely have walked in.
We’ve already had some names put forward and I can tell this is going to be one of the hardest fought ballots of them all. George Shipley? Gareth Ainsworth? Dave Smith? Oh dear, we can’t play all three can we?
Even the reserve squad will be tightly contested too, with David Puttnam appearing in a few nominations already as well. The ever-tricky Dany N’Guessan thrilled fans when he could be bothered, would he get your vote?
Who will you go for? You have until Saturday to nominate before we go to a vote.
