Captain Luke Waterfall joins Shrewsbury

Luke Waterfall has this morning made his move to League One side Shrewsbury after they met his release clause.

The 28-year-old made over 130 appearances during his three-year stay at Sincil Bank, lifting both the National League trophy and the Checkatrade Trophy this season.

His two competition wins make him the most decorated captain in Lincoln City’s history, despite having to battle his way back into the side after promotion last season. His header in the EFL Trophy semi-final against Chelsea U21s helped us to that first ever Wembley appearance.

Luke joined the Imps from Wrexham in the summer of 2015, and has worn the armband for the duration of Danny Cowley’s reign as manager of the club. He’s previously been with Scunthorpe and Gainsborough Trinity too.

The Stacey West wishes Luke all the best with his move and hopefully we’ll see him next year as a League One club. His contributions over the last two seasons have been pivotal to our climb and he will be sorely missed as a character and captain.

Attention now switches to Danny Cowley and Lincoln as the hunt for a new face or two steps up,, with the transfer window just around the corner.

  1. Wish Luke all the best for the future and certainly no hard feelings for taking this move. Always felt myself that this season Luke would be the one to drop out of the team and would certainly be behind Wilson and Wharton if we revert to two central defenders and even if we remain with three thought sooner or later Bostwick would drop back there to free up a midfield berth for O’Conner, Chapman etc. For me he has made a pragmatic decision and to get a three deal is a no brainer from his point of view. Hope Danny tries for Sam Hughes from Leicester onwards and upwards.UTI
