Eight clean sheets this season has already surpassed the total from last year’s National League campaign.
SportsLinc caught up with Imps’ keeper Paul Farman to find out what it was like between the posts at Sincil Bank.
1. Paul, are you happy with your form at the moment?
“I like to think that I have grown as a keeper in the last couple of years mentally and with regards game management.
My kicking has come on a lot. Last season I had a hernia problem which didn’t help. However the niggles and pain have now gone.
Kicking is a big part of a keeper’s game. I try to focus on getting the ball as close as I can to Matt Rhead and it seems to be working.
It’s an understanding. We always like to carry on to the lads that our pass success rate is 100%. It’s a bit of banter really but we do work on it in training during the week.”
2. What’s life like at Sincil Bank?
It’s very different to what I’ve worked under before. Everybody is really buying into it.
Lincoln is the biggest club I’ve played at and I’m really happy and settled.
I’ve said before that I don’t want to be playing anywhere else. I’m happy here at Lincoln.
That’s my future and that’s what I want.”
