Ash Foyle said that Saturday’s draw at Rotherham United was a good learning experience for his side.
Kyrell Wheatley scored the Imps’ goal from the edge of the box to cancel out the Millers’ opener, in what was a competitive fixture in South Yorkshire.
Foyle said: “We were a really young team with a number of U16, trialists and U15 making up the squad - so it was always going to be a difficult task.
“I am really pleased with the performance of the younger players in the group as they have shown a lot of promise and will no doubt benefit from the experience.”
Foyle also credited his side for the way they battled hard away from home to level the score after falling behind.
He continued: “The state of the pitch didn’t help us settle and find any consistency in possession, but I was pleased to see the lads dig in and fight.
“Given the nature of our opposition it was vital that we did this in order to stay competitive throughout the game.
“We didn’t have our usual fluency about us and thankfully Kyrell was able to produce a bit of magic that got us back into the game.”
