Tomorrow sees Keith Alexander return to sincil bank,the man who lead the imps to 4 successive playoff campaigns brings his maccelsfield town side to sincil bank for the last midd week game of the season.
There were some many great times and memory's for the Keith era (2002-06) here are my top five games form that time
Scunthorpe united 0-1 Lincoln city 2002-03 playoff semi final 2nd leg
after a great 5-3 home win over our lincolnshire rivals in the first leg in lincoln,we kept them at arms lenght for most of the game quite easily then with 5 mins to go simon yeo scored to sent us to our first playoff final the atmosphere in the away end for that last 5 mins or so and after the game was the best i have ever been in in fourteen years of watching lincoln the programme takes on of the prides of place in my collection. we had to put up with there manager slagging us off in the press saying we were a long ball team etc etc in the build up to the match. how he felt when in those last 5 mins he had 2,500 lincoln fans chanting "Brian law, your a wanker,your a wanker!" only he will ever know!
Lincoln city 5-0 Grimsby town. 2006
needs no explanation really, 4 -0 up at half time grimsby,s manager holding the team talk on the pitch at half time! good times? i think so!
Grimsby town 2 -4 Lincoln city 2005
Imps storm into a two nil half time lead cods get it back to 2-2 only for simon yeo (him again!) to get his and the imps third within seconds of the cods second. imps score again late on and its battered cod for tea all round!!
fulham 5-lincoln 4 (AET)
Carling cup 2nd round.we played premiership fulham away in the cup, came back form 2 goals twice only to lose with the last kick of extra time! we may have lost but it was a top night out in the capital and the imps played very well against a team 4 leagues above them.
Doncaster rovers 0-2 Lincoln city
living where i do there are alot of donny fans, so to be one of only 2 teams to beat them on there own patch in the year they won the championship went down very well indeed!
there were so many great times under keith, its just a shame we never got him the promotion that he deserved. So big keith, one of footballs true gentleman we salute you and thank you for the memory's!
now ..., let us win keith...please! lol
