Lincoln City: Club Profile
After getting a comfortable tonking off them in our first-ever encounter, meetings since have been a little more even. The Imps easily brushed us aside in our FA Cup Second Round tie in December 1998, but our first season in the same division of them saw us collect six points. And them go down to non-league. Lincoln City, however, have since come back stronger.

Travel Information – Distance: 105 miles
The trip to Lincoln will have you sat in a car for a couple of hours, which is not exactly the worst fate in the world. Go north on the A1(M) and A1 as far as Grantham; this is the bulk of the journey at more than 84 miles.
After you pass Grantham services (offset from the A1), you'll come up to an Esso petrol station on the right. You want to turn right here onto Toll Bar Road (and trust us). Keep going into the village of Marston and carry on through; following the road round to the left at the village hall.
You'll come to Charterwood Kennels and a right turn very shortly. Here, turn right off Main Street. In 3.5 miles, keep going straight onto Stragglethorpe Lane for another couple of miles. This will bring you out onto the A17. Turn right here, and then immediately left for the village of Brant Broughton.
Go through this village and stay on this road; it does get a bit twisty for a short spell. Keep going more or less straight on as the road changes names and, eventually, you should arrive at a T-Junction with Blackmoor Road. Turn right here, and then left straight away onto Low Road.
After about four miles, you should come to the A1434. Turn right onto this, and follow the road around to the left. Continue straight to go onto the A15 and then go straight at the next roundabout for the B1262. In half-a-mile, turn right onto Scorer Street; it's then the first right for Sincil Bank.
If you follow the signs for Away Coaches, this leads you to the A158 South Park Avenue where there is plenty of street parking and a 10 minute walk to the ground. Failing that, if you arrive early enough you can park behind the Stacey West stand for a cost of £4. Once you're there, park up, give the horse a carrot (flat palmed), thank your deity that you're not in Boston and enjoy the rest of your day.
Station: LINCOLN CENTRAL
Services to: NEWARK NORTH GATE (for STEVENAGE, LONDON KINGS CROSS)
If you fancy a stroll, Lincoln Central train station is approx. 15 minutes from the ground. Turn left out of the station and walk to the traffic lights. Throw a left on to the High St, over the level crossing and carry on for approx. 10 mins until turning left on to Scorer Street. Walk along Scorer Street and cross the bridge over the Sincil Drain River, turn right after the bridge and the ground is straight ahead.
