A 36th Knight, in red and white stripes, will honour the way in which Lincoln City FC are spreading Lincoln’s fame far and wide.
Visit Lincoln and Lincoln BIG have teamed-up with Lincoln City FC to ass a new Knight sculpture, sponsored by Visit Lincoln, to take up a key position in the Trail, which will run from May 20th to September 3rd.
Giant-killers Lincoln City – under the leadership of Manager Danny Cowley and his assistant, brother Nicky – thrilled their fans when they beat Premier side Burnley in the fifth-round of the FA Cup, securing a place in the quarter final. They meet Arsenal (the Gunners) at the Emirates Stadium on March 11.
Fifth-tier club Lincoln became the first non-league team in 103 years to reach the last eight in the contest in a match with stunned the world of football. National League leader Lincoln City has also been providing plenty of entertainment for Imps followers, by scoring a string of successes in FA Trophy clashes.
The move promises to give the Imps another superb opportunity to engage with the local community and wider world by having its own sculpture in the Lincoln Knights’ Trail.
On Thursday (March 2nd) at Lincoln City’s afternoon media conference, the Cowley brothers also signed their names on the Lincs Archiving Solutions’ knight, which has already being decorated in readiness for its place in the Knight’s trail.
