BRIEF HISTORY of the LINCOLN CITY FOOTBALL CLUB (reproduced from 'Wikipedia' pages)

Lincoln City Football Club is an English professional football club based in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. The team participates in the National League, the 5th tier of English football. The club plays at the 10,312-capacity Sincil Bank Site, and are nicknamed the Imps after the legend of the Lincoln Imp. They have also been known as the Red Imps. Traditionally they play in red and white striped shirts with black shorts and red and white socks. Their most recent championship win was the Football Conference, in the 198788 season. This season saw the club set an all-time record attendance (which has since been beaten by Oxford United) for a Conference match, attracting 9,432 spectators in a game against Wycombe Wanderers, on 2 May 1988, the last game of the season. The game also decided the championship, as Lincoln had not occupied the top-spot at any point in the season prior to this 20 victory. Their highest ever position achieved came in the 190102 season, where they reached 5th position in the English Division 2. The last season that the club spent in this division was in 196061, they have never returned since.

No team has played as many seasons in the Football League (Lincoln spent 104 seasons in the League) without ever reaching the top tier. An unusual record held by Lincoln is that the club has suffered five demotions from the Football League, more than any other club: in 1908, 1911, 1920, 1987 and 2011. In all but the last case the club returned to the League the following season. The club has reached the last 16 in the FA Cup three times, most recently over 100 years ago in the 190102 season. Their best performance in the League Cup came in 196768 when they reached the Fourth round before losing 03 at home to Derby County in a replay. In the Second round of the 200506 League Cup, Lincoln narrowly lost 54 to Premier League Fulham at Craven Cottage, being denied a draw in the last minute of extra time by a Brian McBride goal. This was after an impressive 51 home victory against Championship side Crewe Alexandra.

In recent history, the club have also been in the chase for promotion from the fourth tier via the play-offs five times, twice reaching the finals (200203 & 200405) and three times getting knocked out in the semi-finals (200304, 200506 & 200607), each time under the guidance of Keith Alexander with the exception of the 200607 play-offs. The failure to succeed in five successive play-off competitions is a record. The last time Lincoln were in a higher league than League Two was in the 199899 season where they played in the Division 2, after they had gained automatic promotion via third position the previous season.
