Proof it Works!
If ever proof were needed - and let's be honest it isn't, it emerged in the 89th minute at the away fixture against Gateshead yesterday. With the Imps trailing 1-0 in a game in which we had much of the play, this happened...
Minutes after coming on as a substitute, Connor scored the vital goal to earn the Imps a deserved point in his first start as a Professional for Lincoln City FC.
Connor joined the Imps Centre of Excellence as a 10 year old prospect then worked his way through the squads before being offered a scholarship in the Summer of 2011. After impressing in his first season as a Scholar, Connor was offered a Professional contract prior to the start of this season. From Centre of Excellence to goalscorer - proof it can be done!
Connor isn't the first and no doubt won't be the last to come through the ranks for us but he is certainly a great example to young players on what is possible. Well done Connor!!
