Lincoln City make second summer signing

Dutch defender joins Imps on a three-year deal

By Local Democracy Reporter

Lincoln City Football Club has made a new signing, bringing in Lewis Montsma from Dutch team FC Dordrecht.

The 22-year-old defender joins on a three-year contract, after his deal expired at his old side.

Montsma said he is “very happy” to be joining the Imps and can’t wait to get started.

“I think it’s an amazing club and I’m delighted to be here.

“From the National League to League One in four years is amazing and I think it’s the perfect move for me to play games and gain experience in England.”

Lincoln City boss Michael Appleton said: “Lewis is a very versatile defender who can play either side at centre half.

“He is a physical specimen and I’m thrilled to have signed him. I’m sure he’ll be a real asset to this club.”

Lewis Montsma becomes The Imps’ second signing so far, following the free transfer of midfielder James Jones from Crewe Alexandra on July 6.

It is all part of Michael Appleton’s restructure of Lincoln City, after having to release numerous first team players due to financial troubles as a result of COVID-19.
