Lincoln City to hold title-winning coach parade

This story is over

Lincoln City will celebrate winning the League Two title with a city-wide coach parade on Sunday.

Sincil Bank was wild with celebration after Lincoln City clinched the League Two title with a goalless draw against Tranmere on Easter Monday. The Imps secured promotion to the third tier of English football for the first time in 20 years.

The parade will take place on Sunday, May 5 starting at 3pm from South Park. It will make its way through the city on a route that has been greatly extended from the previous parade in 2017.

To ensure people’s safety and to keep traffic in Lincoln moving road closures will be in place, following the parade along its three-mile route. See the map below:

The parade will make its way from South Park up the High Street as far as the level crossing, turning left to go up Wigford Way before travelling along Silver Street.

The coaches will then make their way up Lindum Hill (although this short part of the journey will be conducted at normal vehicle speed and spectators are requested to choose an alternative vantage point).

It will then turn left onto Pottergate and make its way to the north of the city and up Newport, past Bishop’s Grosseteste University and along Riseholme Road. The event will finish at around 4pm before the coaches reach the A46.

Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley said: “The unwavering support shown by the people of Lincoln has inspired us every day.

“They have played a key role in our success this season, so to be able to celebrate the League Two champions trophy with everyone in and around the city is something that we’re really looking forward to.”
