Imps’ manager Danny Cowley and players welcome Lincoln City knight to Sincil Bank

This story is over

Lincoln City players came face-to-face with the football club’s “latest signing” when their very own Knight rode into Sincil Bank.

The Imps’ Manager Danny Cowley and members of the team posed with the colourful character which will feature in the Lincoln Knights’ Trail later this year.

The trail will mark the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln and the signing of the Charter of the Forest.

Lincoln Business Improvement Group (Lincoln BIG) and its partner organisation Visit Lincoln devised The Knights’ Trail in partnership with Wild in Art.

The attraction will be made-up of 36 Knights, all sponsored by businesses and organisations, and will be installed in and around the city centre – to be enjoyed from May 20 through to September 3.

Danny Cowley said: “We were delighted to at last meet the Lincoln City Knight when it was brought down to Sincil Bank earlier this week.

“It was a great boost to the players who have been training hard ready to meet the challengers in the final run of National League games.”

Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Matt Corrigan said: “We were thrilled when Lincoln City came on board as a supporter of The Knights’ Trail and we are rooting for the team all the way as it fights to become National League champion.”
