Imps Fans & Legend In Action

Last updated : 19 November 2009 By Peter Muxlow

The Lincoln City Fans team will be attempting to topple the youngsters from Lincoln College, with the aid of Lincoln City legend Simon Yeo.  

The match will be played at Bracebridge Heath's Bath Road playing fields off 10.30

The Match is free though we will be passing a bucket around if anyone has any loose change as this is for a fantastic charity.

Fans team manager David Beck has broguht a lot of new faces this season. Amongst the new faces are a Lincoln Moorland player, an ex British Army midfielder and of course ex soldier Simon Yeo.

LCM were approached recently with a view to adding a couple of faces to the squad, and we are delighted that three of our players are being added to the squad:

Gaz Stanham is an all action defender with 12 years Sunday league experience with Hartsholme. What he has lost in years he makes up for with raw aggression and power. His favoured position is centre half, usually with a forward on the floor in front of him after a crunching tackle. He recently stopped playing for Hartsholme after discovering a new passion for food and for his family. He has been an integral part of the Jackson Building Centres 5 a side team for two years now, taking on the role of manager in this years tournament.

Chris Marren is an ex Sheff Wednesday trainee and the older cousin of Imps player Lee Bennett. Chris is another aggresive but who has an exquisite touch and a keen eye for goal.

Gary Hutchinson is your editor and long time Lincoln City fanatic. On the field he has the workrate of Matt Le Tissier, the first touch of Carlton Palmer and the goalscoring touch of Emile Heskey. In a full season up front for Wragby (under 13's) he scored twice, one of which came in a 14-0 mauling of Market Rasen. Far happier is Gary when talking a good game than trying to replicate his excellent idea's aimlessly on the pitch.

However on a far more serious note, yesterday the 98th serviceman this year fell in action. Our charity events not only honour these brave individuals who give their lives for queen and country, it's also  about injured or returning troops that carry both battle scars and trauma for life.

Imps fans will be putting on events throughout the year including The Two Steve’s H4H bike ride - a tour de Britain on Motorbikes assisted by Simon and the Lincoln 12th Man as well as the Sincil Cycle on Saturday and other events. 


So please feel free to come down and watch the fundraising Imps fans and an Imp legend in action, and if that doesn't pot your pink, you might see your editor steaming around like a headless chicken for three minutes before collapsing in a heap in the corner of the field. That would be worth two quid in the bucket on its own.
