Yes Lincoln City are doing rather well at the moment. Two successive wins. Two excellent team performances. Top scorer in the National League in Matt Rhead. Top of the division.
Not a bad start to the new season.
I caught up with Nicky Cowley, the Imps’ assistant manager who described the type of work he and his brother Danny are doing at Sincil Bank.
Nicky said: “When we wake up we talk about football. Throughout the day we continue to talk about football.
“We talk about the decisions we make and how best we can use our time to do the things that will benefit the club the most.
“In fact we pretty much talk football throughout the day! That’s what we enjoy. That’s what we’re happy to do.
“We work as a team. We divide up our jobs and our roles because there are so many things to cover.
“It’s not just about Danny and myself. It’s also about the team we have around us.
“We aim to provide the best possible environment for the players to go and excel in.
“We’re down to earth regular boys who came from smaller clubs.
“Obviously we worked very hard at those clubs to try and achieve success.
“It’s the only way we know how to be honest.
“We put everything we possibly can into trying to produce a winning football team for the people of Lincoln to enjoy.
“I personally think that spending time with the people I’ve met that the supporters and the people in the wider community thoroughly deserve a winning football team.”
