There seems to be a lot of news coming out about the Imps, but not the sort that demands an article of its own.
Stuff is happening: City are getting some action in, players are being linked and a few familiar faces have found clubs. However, some of it is non-news, it hasn’t really happened yet, whilst other stuff is something we talk about time and time again. I thought to keep you up to speed with anything you’ve missed, I’d go back over News Now for a couple of days and bring you the latest bits and bobs, so you don’t miss anything. It might be prudent after the last 48 hours or so have been dominated by non-Lincoln stuff.
Firstly, let’s raise a glass to the bandwagoners as I’ve seen them called, who are on board for a fourth or fifth season (I lose count now). I’m not sure when the ridiculous ranking of fans ceases, but for yet another season Lincoln City have sold 6,000 season tickets. It’s a great achievement and there are plenty of clubs at our level that would love to do the same: there’s a few who would like to sell 6,000 tickets per game, for any game. The club’s official website confirms tickets sold out on Monday, not long after we also sold our allocation for the Boston United friendly coming up this Saturday.
I’m not sure the importance of this can be understated. This season there is no salary cap, which is why Ipswich and Wigan (amongst others) can suddenly start throwing Championship-sized wages at proven scorers such as Joe Pigott and Charlie Wyke. We have to be a little savvier, but maximising income on STs should certainly help. A full Sincil Bank is a sight to behold too, it attracted Chris Maguire here (amongst other things) and it could be the advantage that money cannot buy next season.
