Harry Anderson: It was an honour to captain Lincoln

30 November 2020

Harry Anderson was delighted to captain the Imps at the weekend, describing the experience as an honour on his 185th appearance in a City shirt.

The 23-year-old has three goals to his name this season, most recently finding the back of the net against Man City U21 at LNER Stadium in Papa John’s Trophy action.

Speaking about Saturday's experience as skipper, Harry said: “It was an honour to captain Lincoln.

“It was a good experience, I’m in my fifth season with the club now so it’s a big achievement for me, I felt like it came with lots of responsibility because I had to be more vocal and make sure everyone was on their game.”

The winger continued by discussing his personal game, and how he is enjoying life with the Imps under Michael Appleton.

“I feel like I have developed a lot and I have a good understanding of what the gaffer wants from me. I am enjoying adding and learning different things to my game.

“I am pleased with how my time with the club is going, it’s good to be back in League One playing football and I have enjoyed the journey to get here with Lincoln.

“We have a really good squad here, everyone has settled in and we all have a good understanding of each other, we know we can’t play each week and it would be silly not to utilise the squad.”

Harry also commented on the topic of not being able to have supporters at LNER Stadium, saying how he misses the electric atmosphere Lincoln is known for.

“I miss the fans; it feels different not having them there because our supporters intimidate the opponent because they’re so good and create a great atmosphere.

 “When you walk out onto the pitch, usually you have 10,000 people cheering you on which gives you an extra boost, but without them I will just keep giving my all to play football for the club because I know they are watching us from home.”
