Lasse Sorensen is the 2023/24 AllLincoln Player of the Season.

Lasse has enjoyed a great 23/24 campaign with the Imps, continuing to improve as a right wing-back after making the change to the wide position towards the back end of the 2022/23 season. 

Lasse joined the Imps in 2021 as the club aimed to rebuild the squad following a mass exodus after the 2020/21 playoff campaign. He arrived alongside fellow midfielders Ted Bishop and Lewis Fiorini to bolster the central area of the pitch after the departure of Jorge Grant and the injury situation surrounding Liam Bridcutt.

Lasse endured a difficult first season at the club, struggling to get any consistency down to a lack of game time after the Christmas period. A change to RWB during the 22/23 season saw Lasse’s Imps career really take off though, with the Dane now one of the first names on the team sheet. There’s been plenty of brilliant moments from Lasse since converting to a wing-back. A goal against Wycombe Wanderers from the half-way line; his goal against Notts County in front of nearly 2,000 travelling Imps and that performance on the right-wing against Charlton under Tom Shaw just to name a few.

This season he’s gone from strength-to-strength under all three head coaches. He shined under Mark Kennedy in the first few months of the season and in Tom Shaw’s interim spell as head coach but his form under Michael Skubala has been even more impressive, as City stormed up the league. Skubala has transformed the Imps into an attacking side, and that’s only helped Lasse show his quality even more, providing a constant threat down the right-hand side. 

The 24-year-old is a firm fans’ favourite at Sincil Bank and many will be hoping he doesn’t just stay next season, but he stays for multiple years to come.

This is Lasse’s first AllLincoln Player of the Season after Regan Poole took the award two years in a row, following Jorge Grant winning it during the 20/21 season. The Dane has been a ultra-consistent performer in the side, playing almost every game this season, while adding plenty of goals and assists to his game too.

He will look to continue his impressive run of form when City face Portsmouth on Saturday afternoon, needing a win to secure a place in the League One playoffs.
