Six strikers that could replace Ollie Palmer as the fourth striker

Luke Williams

The 25-year old is another without the goals in his past, but again that isn’t as crucial when we’re looking for the fourth man. Remember, this isn’t a player we’re looking to rely on heavily, but one we hope to develop, bring in gently and give EFL Trophy football too. Williams wouldn’t need tempting because of location, he’s currently playing for Scunthorpe with little success.

Williams was once a highly rated youngster at Middlesbrough, but as time passed so did his promise and he’s struggled to force himself into sides on a regular basis. some players are late bloomers though and there’s plenty in Williams to make me think he could be that sort of player.

He’s never dropped into League Two, not even on loan, which might be a stumbling block as there’s probably a belief he can play higher. If there is, that is the sort of ambition Danny is looking for, no matter what the squad needs Danny will only sign a player he’d be confident starting and who wanted to progress.

He was released by Scunthorpe in May and wouldn’t break the bank either.





  1. DC named Andrade as a forward in his recent interview, and Andrade said he wanted ot be up top. Shaw’s also on trial – so that potentially gives five already at the club. Are Lincoln actively looking for other options as well?

  2. Agree with you about Andrade Graeme. If Shaw’s trial is successful he could be the ‘unknown quantity.’ In as much as the opposition would not initially know much about him. An impact sub. He is local as we all know. Probably his wages would not be as high as the strikers mentioned above. After all we do not know how much of the transfer budget was used up to get big John Akinde. Danny likes a rough diamond from non league he can work with to polish up. I love it though plenty of if’s buts and maybe’s. We might pick up better clues when the squad is back next week.

  3. Again I agree I believe Andrade was a striker but could play out wide if called upon. I think shaw is a very good prospect and forward line is covered and we need couple of defenders and maybe midfield cover.
    I can’t wait for season to start and looking forward to Tuesday night to see how we line up I am not expecting them to be ‘on method ‘ but to see lots of promising players. Up the imps

    • A couple of defenders and midfield cover? Definitely!… Would like to see Michael Bostwick a permanent central defender. Another defensive midfielder I would particularly like to see brought in.

  4. Tom Miller gone to Bury, not what we were looking for. Need left sided central defender and cover for Eardley.

  5. I want to see an assessment of our youth squad fringe players to see who’s not to far away as far to many lads have been let go in the past who could fit in the squad. Matt Cotton has a great eye for goal full of energy loves the game not much cash would secure the lad.
