City playing key community role

The Imps have reached a milestone this season with a record number of player visits carried out in partnership with Lincoln City Foundation.

With player visits limited during the 2020/21 season, everyone at the club has been keen to see the club play its part in the community.

And having recorded 150 player visits over a six-week period, the players are certainly pulling their weight.

Players are regulars at coaching sessions and events put on by the Foundation, but have also visited schools and other community groups - and even went down to International Bomber Command to pay their respects ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

Jessica Shepherd, early years leader at the Foundation, said: “We've had lots of positive feedback from parents regarding player visits. The children were so excited to be meeting their heroes and proud to be going home with boots, gloves and tops signed.

"Over the week we had eight players visiting our children getting involved in some of our spooky activities, a highlight had to be Sorensen’s willingness to be wrapped up like a mummy in our spooktacular games!”

Imps chief executive Liam Scully added: "We're proud to reach this level of engagement within our community, we've set a standard and are challenging ourselves to maintain and surpass that going forward.

"We are clear that players at Lincoln City must see taking part in our community programmes is a key part of their role at the club and are pleased that everyone we've brought into the squad in recent years understands the importance we place on this."
