Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley highlighted the importance of the club’s “very special” fanbase during a recent interview with local Labour MP Karen Lee.
Danny and Karen also discussed topics including the Checkatrade Trophy, which the Imps won at Wembley, safe standing at football grounds and match programmes.
Danny said: “I think the thing that I underestimated was just how much allegiance the people have, not just with the football club, but with the city and how proud people are to be Lincoln.
“Coming from Essex myself people don’t have that affinity with where we live and it’s really powerful.”
He added: “When you come here on a Saturday afternoon and you see the supporters and the unconditional support they’ve given us, particularly when we haven’t been playing so well, the way they’ve stayed with us and the loyalty they’ve shown is something that makes them very special to me.”
The Imps travel to face Exeter tonight in the second leg of their play-off semi-final after the first match at Sincil Bank ended goalless.
The winner will play Notts County or Coventry at Wembley on Monday, May 28.
