Through a unique, innovative and individualised player development programme, Lincoln City FC will develop a first team squad made up of a higher percentage of Academy graduates than any other club in The English Football League who exceeds its position in the football pyramid year on year.

It is via these quantitative measures that we can take pride in both the achievement of our Academy but more importantly its impact on both the success and sustainability of the wider football club. Our vision will be achieved by recruiting, developing and retaining outstanding people who thrive in our environment underpinned by honesty, integrity and a relentless desire for continual improvement.

Ensuring we are at the forefront of innovation in both player development and player pathways, Lincoln City FC Academy will consistently achieve outstanding returns on investment by realising asset value for players across the performance pathway who will go on to achieve at the highest echelons of the game. Aspirational with our aims but consistently excellent with our standards and behaviours, we will continue to develop our reputation locally, regionally and nationally as an outstanding provider of holistic player education where young people can thrive, succeed and achieve their potential.

“Taking responsibility and accountability for each individual journey, everybody leaves Lincoln City FC with a future”
