Defender rejoins Imps on loan

He scored twice for the Imps last season

Lincoln City have signed defender Scott Wharton on loan from Blackburn Rovers in a deal to keep him at Sincil Bank until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The 20-year-old spent time with the Imps last season, playing 15 times during his first spell with the League Two club.

He also scored two goals for Danny Cowley’s men in that time – in the 3-1 away win at Chesterfield and against Lincolnshire rivals Grimsby at Sincil Bank.
