Fans gallery: Imps 0 Gillingham 2

More than 8,000 fans were at the LNER Stadium on Saturday to soak up the big matchday atmosphere.

The family activities started from 9am with Mini Imps sessions on the 3G pitch opposite the LNER Stadium, followed by the Lincoln Talent Centre and the DS Active team.

The University of Lincoln Fan Village was open from 12noon, with supporters of both sides able to enjoy great locally-sourced food and drink options - from iconic Lincolnshire sausages to curries.

Young fans were able to take part in the free Premier League Kicks sessions, as well as a range of interactive activities such as an inflatable football challenge and a virtual reality experience provided by club partners Tension Twisted Realities.

Max, a young City supporter, joined matchday announcer Alan Long on the pitch before kick-off to help read out the teams, while Hope McClements celebrated her impending 12th birthday in style with the club's regular moment of magic as she and her family got to watch the players warm-up while sat in the home team dugout.

Pupils from Sturton By Stow Primary School provided the guard of honour as players of both teams walked out for the game, while there was more entertainment at the half-time interval as supporters came onto the pitch to take part in the LNER Crossbar Challenge.

Attendance: 8,208 (362)
