James is supporter of the year

City goalkeepers Lukas Jensen and Jordan Wright surprised Imps fan James Hunsley with an invite to join them for a training session as they told him he had won Fan of the Year.

James was chosen by fellow supporters in the annual poll run by the Red Imps Community Trust (RICT), and presented with the prize during last Tuesday's open training session held at the LNER Stadium. James had no idea he was going to be presented with the prize when he asked for a picture with the players.

A spokesperson for the RICT said: "After a lot of voting it was clear that Lincoln City fans wanted James to win and he was not just a worthy winner, he was a long way from the pack victor from all the nominations received."

Imps head coach Mark Kennedy added: "Everyone knows James as he is such a bubbly character and never missed a home game - he's always there when we come out for the game with a fistbump and back by the tunnel at the end of the match.

"I know he plays in goal when he represents City in the club's DS Active team and always looks out for Lukas and Jordan in particular, watching how they play for tips to take into his game. I know our goalkeeping coach Scott Fry will put on a great session for James and I look forward to seeing him up at the Soper of Lincoln Elite Performance Centre soon."
