Bruce Grobbelaar (1998)
I was lucky enough not to see Grobbelaar play for Lincoln – I missed his only home game before Christmas in 1998. Like Ethan, Bruce represented the Imps twice after signing on December 10th 1998. He kept a clean in a 0-0 draw with Colchester before conceding four away at Wycombe. He was released from his contract before the onset of Christmas and didn’t make another league appearance for anyone. Most recently, he has been working as a goalkeeping coach with Norwegian second-tier outfit Øygarden FK
Adam Kerley (2004)
Kerley was a prolific scorer for City’s reserves during the early part of his Imps career, but only made two substitute appearances for the first team, one in the LDV Vans Trophy against Doncaster and one in the League versus Kidderminster. He never properly broke into the first team though and he spent time out on loan before moving to Gainsborough Trinity.
Aidan Murphy (1986)
I’ll always remember Murphy for his short loan spell because he made his debut the day I attended my first ever Imps match. I remember marvelling at the thought of a Manchester United player being on loan at Lincoln City. We lost 4-1 at home to Hartlepool, then 2-0 at Exeter, and he returned to Man Utd having not satisfied my young mind one little bit. Between 1987 and 1992 he appeared regularly for Crewe Alexandra, before ending his career in the US with Carolina Dynamo, Minnesota Rampage and Raleigh Flyers.
Ellis Remy (2003)
Remy arrived at the same time as Rory May in 2003 but managed just 32 minutes on the park in a Lincoln shirt. He came on for the last 25 minutes of our 1-0 opening day defeat by Oxford, then again against Stockport a week later, getting seven minutes of action. Gary Taylor Fletcher arrived at the club a week later, Rory May dropped to the bench and Ellis Remy began his quest to play for every non-league club in the south of England. When I say that, I’m not exaggerating either, since leaving City he appeared for Grays Athletic, Redbridge, Braintree Town, East Thurrock United, Margate, Bromley, Staines Town, Harrow Borough, East Thurrock United (again), Folkestone Invicta, Welling United, Heybridge Swifts, Enfield Town, Bishop’s Stortford, Potters Bar Town, Brentwood Town, Maldon & Tiptree, Aveley, Hemel Hempstead Town, Eastbourne Borough, Hitchin Town, Haringey Borough, Histon. Tilbury, Enfield Borough, and Ware. He also appeared for Montserrat six times, scoring twice.
