The Imps can confirm that its first team and academy players have recently been placed on furlough leave due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This decision is aligned within the framework recently agreed by the EFL and the PFA. This move has been made in order to protect the long term financial viability of the club in what are unprecedented times.
A number of weeks ago, the FA, Premier League and the EFL announced they would be collectively postponing their competitions until such time that it is safe for them to resume. We will of course, keep all supporters informed with any updates that we receive.
A small number of team members, including manager Michael Appleton, continue to work from home, and the club’s priority remains the health and wellbeing of its players, staff, supporters and local community during this extremely tough period for us all.
