All you need to know about our Cadbury family fun day

The Imps are hosting a Family Fun Day on Tuesday 26 July in partnership with club partner Cadbury.

The Lincoln City XI v West Ham United U23 fixture which was scheduled as part of the event will not take place, but this will be replaced by a full first team training session at the LNER Stadium which will be open to the public, giving everyone a chance to watch Mark Kennedy working with his new look Imps squad, as well as a number of activities on the 3G astroturf.

From midday, the players will begin to arrive in preparation for their open training session on the stadium pitch at 1pm.

The session will last for approximately 90 minutes before supporters have the opportunity to meet the players from 3pm. The squad will make their way around the LNER pitch following a 5-minute break after their session to sign autographs and pose for photographs.

The event is scheduled to finish by 4pm, however supporters will be able to purchase tickets for our upcoming fixtures, as well as club merchandise, from our official club store until 5pm.
