About the site
The Stacey West is a fan led blog / website dedicated to bringing you the latest news, views and opinion of all things Lincoln City. We cover all the latest news in League Two as well, and often look at stories from a Lincoln bias, so please be warned.
We will accept reader contributions, but they have to be of a certain standard and offer content worth reading.
I’m Gary Hutchinson, a freelance writer and blogger, and for over thirty years now I’ve been supporting Lincoln City. I’m the guy with the ginger beard in the photo, the short bald bloke is my old man.
I’ve recently published two books, the Who’s who of Lincoln City 1993-2016, and A Season in Blogs. Both are available through Amazon. I am currently penning my third book, an account of my life as a football mascot.
Once upon a time I was the official Sky Sports blogger for The Imps, before they slipped out of the league. I’ve been published in the Observer and Sporting Life and I used to run the lincolncity-mad website. I have written for Vital Lincoln City, the Echo and the match day programme at various times. I have used to regularly contribute to the Deranged Ferret fanzine, and I edited six editions.
In October 2016 I was honoured and thrilled to have my blog voted as a finalist at The Football Blogging Awards of 2016 in the Best New Blog category. Unfortunately I did not win, but being a finalist and attending the awards ceremony was fantastic.
Once upon a time I was City mascot ‘Poacher the Imp’, I spent almost sixteen years ‘behind the mask’ before finally retiring in 2013. I’ve been watching Lincoln since 1986, and consider being a fan of such a wonderful club both a honour and a privilege.
