Lincoln City enter life in League One having won the League Two title in the 2018/19 campaign. 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 before that match with a draw against Cheltenham to put them into England’s first third tier for the first time since 1999.

Lincoln celebrated winning the league title with a city-wide coach parade.

There is still another announcement for Imps’ fans to wait for on Thursday. The Carabao Cup Round One draw will take place this evening live from Morrisons in Colindale. The Imps are Ball 18 in the North Section.
