Open-top bus tour of Lincoln planned to honour Imps’ promotion

This story is over

Lincoln City players look set to be celebrated with an open top bus tour for their outstanding performance in the National League, which concluded with promotion this weekend.

The match against Macclesfield Town on Saturday before 10,000 fans ended in spectacular scenes of jubilation, marking an end to the club’s six-year stint in the league.

The club’s performance, under manager Danny Cowley and brother Nicky, has been a story of national fame, signalling a new direction for the team and their facilities as well as bringing a boom of attention to the city.

Against a tidal wave of support, the City of Lincoln Council has announced plans for an open top bus tour through the city to celebrate the triumph.

Final details of the parade are still to be confirmed, the council has told The Lincolnite, but a provisional date of tea time on Tuesday, May 2 is the current scheduling.

Residents and visitors of the city would have the chance to line a route through the city (still to be decided), cheering on the Sincil Bank stars.
