Five years is a long time in football and Lincoln City are perhaps as much a testament to that as anyone.
They’ve gone from being a bottom-half National League side in 2013 to a fully fledged member of the Football League.
However, that only tells half the story.
They won the Checkatrade Trophy last season, they won the nation’s hearts with their FA Cup run the year before and this season, they’re aiming to win League Two as well.
That’s not bad work for just over two years of life under Danny and Nicky Cowley. The resurgence has lit a fire in the city, with attendances rising from around 2,000 to 9,000 sell out crowds every week.
It may horrify some to have to look back any further than the summer of 2016, but FLW look at the four worst signings Lincoln City have made in the last five years.
If you’re squeamish, look away now.
