FIVE MEMORABLE GAMES VS WYCOMBE Wanderers

5 September 2019

This weekend sees the 19th Football League meeting between The Imps and The Chairboys, although of course we did meet in non league football too, so we take a look back at some of the memorable clashes between the two sides from the past 30 years.

WYCOMBE 2-2 LINCOLN – 2017/18

The Imps earned a point on their return to the Football League away at Wycombe Wanderers in 2017.

Matt Green opened the scoring at Adams Park in the 31st minute as Nathan Arnold provided an assist by squaring the ball in the penalty area for Green to tap in.

Wycombe were quick to reply, equalising six minutes later through talented midfielder Luke O’Nien who got on the end of Joe Jacobson’s free-kick.

O’Nien went on to score eight goals in the 2017/18 SkyBet League Two campaign as Wycombe won promotion under former Imps man Gareth Ainsworth.

Jacobson was involved again as Wanderers took the lead through a 25-yard free-kick from the former Wales U21 international. However, Josh Ginnelly scored the equalising goal for Lincoln four minutes into the second half after getting on the end of Alex Woodyard’s through ball to earn the Imps a point.

WYCOMBE 1-3 LINCOLN – 2006/07

An important victory in City’s 2006/07 play-off push under John Schofield which ultimately ended in disappointment against Bristol Rovers.

Former Wycombe striker Mark Stallard scored a brace against his former side with Lee Frecklington also getting on the scoresheet to secure Lincoln three points.

Former Watford striker, Tommy Mooney was the Chairboys’ only goal scorer on the day with the final score finishing 3-1.

WYCOMBE 2-3 LINCOLN – 1993/94

A high scoring fixture between the two sides during the early ‘90s, a total of 5,623 fans attended Adams Park as Lincoln faced Wycombe.

Wycombe legend Dave Carroll was on the scoresheet for the Chairboys with Steve Thompson also finding the back of the net.

Dean West, Neil Matthews and Ian Baraclough all scoring for the Imps to secure three points.

WYCOMBE 1-2 LINCOLN – 1987/88

Lincoln travelled to Wycombe in November 1987 during the pairs spell in the Conference National.

2,105 fans attended Loakes Park as the Chairboys celebrated their century anniversary.

Matt Carmichael and Graham Bressington started for Wycombe before the pair made the move to Sincil Bank later on in their careers.

Bobby Cumming and Phil Brown scored for Lincoln as they picked up a vital pair of three points in their promotion push.

LINCOLN 2-0 WYCOMBE – 1987/88

The 1987/88 campaign was a memorable one for Lincoln fans as the side won promotion to the Football League after winning the Conference title.

City also did the double over Wycombe winning their home tie 2-0 in front of 9,432 fans at Sincil Bank.

Phil Brown was on the scoresheet again for Lincoln with Mark Sertori also scoring for the Imps.

Nigel Batch kept a clean sheet in his last game for City as they came out 2-0 winners gaining promotion to the Football League.
