Nothing thrills me more than writing the next sentence: Ian and Donald Nannestad have updated what I call the Lincoln City bible.
Lincoln City: A History and Statistical Record is now available to buy on eBay and it is every bit as good as I’d hoped. I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on a review copy, and boy, was it worth the wait.
You may recall back in the late nineties they released The Official History with all the results, line-ups and the like. I use that book most weeks, there’s been a copy within a foot of my laptop for the last ten years or more. Well, this new release is like that only bigger and better. I love a stat and the new book delivers a real punch.
You could be forgiven for thinking it’s just an update to the old book, but it’s not; there’s so much more in here. I’m utterly delighted to see that reserve fixtures have been included, with scorers where possible, going right back through history. Now, Carlos Rocha is no longer just a name I remember and nobody else; he scored for the reserves and forever he is a part of club history. That is just the one thing I noticed when leafing through this mammoth 430-page publication.
There’s so much depth in here it’s hard to go into. It’s a club history, with everything from programme covers to club records, friendly scorers to attendances, league tables, cup games and more or less everything in between. You know what it is, it’s the Bible. Any self-respecting Lincoln City fan needs a copy in their lives!
