Sports: Who Lincoln City supporters want as their new manager

More exciting sports news from around Lincolnshire…

The search for Danny and Nicky Cowley’s replacement is well underway.

The pair’s departure to Huddersfield Town has meant that, for the first time in more than three years, City are the hunt for a new manager.

With two promotions, an EFL Trophy win and a history-making FA Cup quarter-final run, they will be certainly be a tough act to follow.

But we thought we would make it a bit easier for the City board to make their decision by asking you, the fans, who should be the next person to take charge of Lincoln City.

Lincolnshire Live set up a poll and scores of you have voted, so here’s who you have chosen.

At the time of writing, 38 per cent of you want City to make a move for the Wycombe Wanderers manager.

Ainsworth enjoyed a successful playing spell at Sincil Bank and is working wonders at Adams Park, including Saturday’s 3-1 win over the Imps.

It remains to be seen whether he would want to leave a club where he has been manager since 2012, but it seems a lot of City fans think the board should do all they can to convince him to come back to Sincil Bank.

The Newport County boss is the second choice as voted for by you.

Flynn has so far received 26 per cent of the vote.

He is the current bookies’ favourite after a fantastic time in charge of the Welsh club after saving them from the brink of relegation in 2017.

Last season’s beaten League Two play-off finalists, Flynn has also guided the Exiles to number of eye-opening cup runs – sound familiar.


Nigel Adkins

There is a big drop in the vote so far to third-placed Nigel Adkins.

The former Scunthorpe United manager has pedigree having managed in the Premier League with Southampton.

He recently enjoyed a decent spell at Hull City, but with only eight per cent of the vote, it seems his CV isn’t enough to make him most City fans’ preferred choice.

Who should be the next Imps manager?


Someone else

While there have been no names mentioned, seven per cent want someone else to take charge.

A number of outlandish names have appeared in the bookies odds so could it be that City fans want to see the likes of Martin Jol or Steve McLaren the job.

Other voted for candidates include Phil Parkinson, Gary Rowett  and Sol Campbell (four per cent), while Kevin Nolan (three per cent), Tim Flowers (two per cent) and Michael Appleton (one per cent) all have at least one vote.

Caretaker manager Jamie McCombe also has three per cent of the vote.

A reminder that the poll is still open and you can vote for it in this story.
