The AllLincoln journey started in 2019, but it wasn’t always like this. The page started originally over on Instagram, where I started a small page to update City fans with news surrounding the club. When it first started, it was rather unprofessional to put it nicely, but as it grew it matured and the format of news improved. The Instagram page is still active now, being one of the only active Lincoln City news pages on the site. I will always look back to the time I started the Instagram page as the most pivotal point as one afternoon of boredom created what I have now.
I was lucky enough to be mentored by some brilliant people within the football club during the 20/21 season, which helped me advance AllLincoln to big new heights. As the Instagram page peaked, I wanted more and moved towards the idea of a website, where I could not only share news but build a group of readers that want to see my opinion on matches, transfer news and even off the field matters such as stadium expansion. The website helps me get across my opinion and also allows others to debate their opinions too against mine on social media.
The 21/22 was by far the best season for the site, although it was tough on the pitch at many points. The season started with the media team at the club sanctioning me to hold an interview with bright young goalkeeper Sam Long over a Zoom call. It was a massive step for me and the site having an exclusive interview that I conducted myself. I spoke to Sam about many topics such as his debut and his first cleansheet in the Papa John’s trophy. I continued to publish multiple articles per week throughout the season, and also thanks to the media team I had a chance to award Imps’ defender Regan Poole the AllLincoln Player of the Season award, which again was a proud moment personally for me but it was also good exposure for the site and the work that has been put in to it.
AllLincoln will continue into the new season, and the content will be coming more regularly with yet more quality. Last of all none of this would have been possible without the people involved at the club within the media team that have given me multiple opportunities and advice. Again, this would not be possible at all without the incredible images from our photographer Graham Burrell.
I want to thank everyone that has supported this site, whether you’ve read one article or you follow every match review, it is all appreciated. Up The Imps!
