We can now announce the intake of 9 new first year scholars ahead of the 2021/22 season.
The new intake will be joining the continuing second year scholars boarding at Lincoln Minster School as part of the Imps’ partnership with the esteemed education institution. Many of the boys will be working with Riseholme College, our main education partner, to complete a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sporting Excellence and Performance.
The new scholars will spend two years at the club under the guidance of Professional Development Phase Coaches Ash Foyle & Tom Shaw.

“We were delighted to welcome our new 1st year scholars to the football club last Monday. With most of the boys residing at Lindum View, the next few weeks will provide an opportunity for them to forge new relationships across both the playing and staff team whilst embarking on their first taste of full-time football. We are extremely excited about the potential of this group of young players and our highly skilled staff team are looking forward to supporting the boys to fulfil their potential both on and off the pitch over the next 12 months”
