Academy head coach Alan Chambers is looking forward to the new season.

"I am very proud of the strides the academy has made in recent years, but we are ambitious and want to continue to grow the sport and the team," he said.

"We have a strong core of players at U16s and U19s and I am expecting good things this year, but we still need recruit new players throughout the season to keep improving and be competitive."

The academy meets at 9.30am every Sunday at Monks Abbey Sports Field, Greetwell Road, Lincoln for youngsters aged 13 to 18.

Youngsters trying the sport out do not need their own kit.

Off the field success has it’s own difficulties with academy struggling financially following Covid and needing more help with coaching and in management with vacancies including roles in media, welfare, a game day manager and kit manager.
