City have moved to add another youth team player to the professional squad, Michael-John Kamson-Kamara.
The 17-year-old was at the recent game against Derby County, where he penned his first long-term deal with the club.
“MJ has taken every challenge in his stride since signing for the club and has enjoyed a brilliant diet of youth team and B team fixtures this season,” said Director of football Jez George. “He has real potential; he has earned this first professional contract and has shown an outstanding mindset in all aspects of his scholarship.
“MJ has really exciting attributes, so we are delighted that he has committed to the club for the long term and trusted us with the next phase of his development at Lincoln City. I would also like to thank Lai at XYZ Academy who provides opportunities at professional clubs to so many young players and helped us to sign MJ as a scholar last summer.”

The attacker has been playing for Bromley up to Under 16 level, where a stand-out performance against Dover in the Kent Mertit Under 16 Boys Cup saw him announced as a future Lincoln City scholar. Whilst the route to the first team is long and arduous, it is another example of our youth recruitment reaching out beyond the confines of the city as we hunt the next player to follow Sean Roughan into the first team picture.
MJ becomes the ninth former academy player to be handed a professional deal, following Sam Long, Roughan, Elicha Ahui, Hayden Cann, Oisin Gallagher, Morgan Worsfold-Gregg, Freddie Darper and Jovon Makama.
