Imps goalkeeper leaves to join Stevenage

Farman made over 200 appearances for Lincoln

Lincoln goalkeeper Paul Farman has left the club to join fellow League Two side Stevenage after making over 200 appearances for the Imps.

During his six-year permanent stay at Sincil Bank, Farman made 228 appearances to put him fifth in the all-time list of appearances for Lincoln City goalkeepers.

Farman made 18 appearances in all competitions during Lincoln’s first season back in the Football League in the 2017/18 campaign, including a role in the Imps run to winning the Checkatrade Trophy.

The goalkeeper, who made 200 league starts during his time with the Imps, played a key role in Lincoln’s historic 2016/17 FA Cup run, with clean sheets against Ipswich and Premier League side Burnley.

Imps boss Danny Cowley said: “We think an awful lot of Paul, but he wants to play.

“He’s worked so hard to get into the Football League, and played such a big part in the year we won promotion, we just believe he deserves this opportunity to go to Stevenage and be their number one choice.

“He’s been brilliant for this football club, he’s been a fantastic servant, and very loyal to us.

“We just felt that it was the right thing to do, it’ll be a loss to the squad, but it’s the right thing for him and his family.”
