Imps win League Two title after goalless draw

Come on you Imps

Sincil Bank was wild with celebration after Lincoln City clinched the League Two title with a goalless draw against Tranmere on Easter Monday.

As previously reported, the Imps secured promotion into England’s third tier – League One – for the first time since 1999 with a 1-1 draw against Cheltenham on April 13.

Mansfield’s 3-2 defeat at Oldham on Monday meant the Imps’ draw was enough for Lincoln to claim their second league title success in three years under management duo Danny and Nicky Cowley.

The brothers led Lincoln back into the Football League by winning the National League title in the 2016/17 season. They also guided Lincoln to Checkatrade Trophy glory in the 2017/18 campaign with a 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury in the club’s first trip to Wembley in 133 years.

Securing the League Two title on Easter Monday was the icing on the cake. What an incredible three years it has been under the Cowley brothers. Long may it continue.

However, the League Two season isn’t over just yet. The season ends with a trip to Newport on April 27 before the final league game of the season at home against Colchester on May 4. After that it’s on to League One.
