More exciting sports news from around Lincolnshire…

Gareth Ainsworth has shot to the top of the bookmakers’ odds to be the next Lincoln City manager after hinting he would be open to a return to the club.

In an interview published yesterday, the Wycombe Wanderers manager said the Imps shared his ambition of wanting to reach the Championship.

He said: “If somebody did come knocking, I’m sure that the Wycombe fans would understand that it’s decision time.”

Since then, Ainsworth’s odds to succeed Danny Cowley have come in from 7/1 to 6/4.

Newport County manager Michael Flynn, thought to be another leading contender for the role, is now joint-second favourite with BetVictor.

He was the early favourite with bookmakers and was evens at one stage, but his odds have drifted to 4/1.

A surprise name, King’s Lynn Town manager Ian Culverhouse, can also be backed at 4/1.

Imps coach Jamie McCombe, who has been placed in caretaker charge of the team until the new manager is appointed, is fourth favourite at 8/1.

Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane and ex-Notts County boss Kevin Nolan, who has expressed his interest in the job, are both 14/1.

The odds of two experienced, out-of-work managers, Nigel Adkins and Phil Parkinson, have drifted out to 20/1.
