4 October 2019

Ahead of our Lincolnshire-themed match day for our Sky Bet League One fixture against Sunderland at Sincil Bank on Saturday, the match day playlist has been chosen, which will be played before the match and at half-time.

We tasked supporters across our social media platforms with providing Lincolnshire-themed songs for the playlist, and we narrowed it down to 17, including Lincolnshire-born; song writers, bands, song titles/artist names and locations of album recordings.
