“Must-see” Lincoln City exhibition opens this week

Earning promotion from the National League, playing Arsenal in the FA Cup and winning at Wembley are just some of Lincoln City’s achievements which will be celebrated at a new exhibition opening this week.

Lincoln City fans are being invited to “celebrate Lincoln’s love for the Imps” and relive the past two years in a special showcase being held at The Collection museum.

The exhibition, called “The Journey – a celebration of Lincoln City FC 2016-18”, is open to the public for free from Saturday, 23 June and closes a month later on Sunday, 22 July.

The Checkatrade Trophy will also be on display in the first two weeks that the exhibition opens.

Councillor Nick Worth, Lincolnshire County Council, said there will be a space for fans to share their own memories from the past two seasons.

He said: “This is a must-see exhibition for any Lincoln City fan. Following the success of the club and the feel good factor that embraced the city of Lincoln, we wanted to celebrate this in a special way.

“Not only will we have the Checkatrade Trophy with us for the first two weeks of the exhibition, but the club has kindly lent us other items from the historic Wembley final to put on display.”

Ian McCallum, Lincoln City FC, said: “Everyone from the players to the staff behind the scenes at the club are extremely honoured to have such an exhibition charting the team’s success over the last two seasons.

“There is no doubt that it’s been a historic time for the club and the city. This exhibition gives all visitors to The Collection a fantastic opportunity to relive some special memories.”

Admission to the exhibition is free. Find out more about what The Collection has to offer on their website.
