Imps managerial duo Danny and Nicky Cowley will be receiving the Civic Award tonight at the Guildhall for their contributions to the city of Lincoln.

Speaking in the pre-Port Vale Press Conference this afternoon, Danny re-iterated that he and brother Nicky will be collecting the award on behalf of everyone involved with the football club.

"We’re really proud to accept this award on behalf of everybody at the football club. One of our major aims has been to unite everyone," Cowley said.

"It’s so important, it was never going to be an 11-man job. To get this football club back to where we want to go was clearly going to be a whole city and whole county job."

It's the second honour the Cowley brothers will have received in a matter of days folllowing the Checkatrade Trophy triumph in front of 27,000 Imps in the club's first ever trip to Wembley Stadium.

"There was over 27,000 fans at Wembley on Sunday, and I know it just sounds like a number, but when you see it, feel it and hear it, it was just an amazing event to be part of," He added.

"It was a really good day for the football club and the city of Lincoln. On the pitch and off the pitch we conducted ourselves really well, and showed the rest of the world what a place Lincoln is."

The Imps boss maintains that the community spirit and the work behind-the-scenes has all played a massive part in securing the Civic Award from the City of Lincoln Council.

"Once you’ve been here for two or three weeks, you try to learn about DNA about the city and the football club," Cowley said.

"We soon realised we found a support-based with such an allegiance to the city and the football club and I remember saying ‘we’ve got to use this, we’ve got to use this to our advantage, because it’s quite unique.’

"All we’ve done for the good of everybody is to get people out there and speak to people and have a bit of human connection. I like people, and it’s great that so many people have played a part in the success."

The event will be live on the City of Lincoln Council's Facebook page from 7pm.
