A group of almost 200 fans gathered at Sincil Bank to voice their annoyance with the way Lincoln City is being run.
The protest was organised by supporter group ‘Save the Imps’ who have been lobbying for the dismissal of manager David Holdsworth and chairman Bob Dorrian after a run of bad results.
One fan who was there as an away team supporter, expressed his frustration; “I joined the protest because this football club should not be beaten and bruised, they need this sorting out because this football club won’t die”
In a statment provided by the board of directors
“The Board of Directors wish to condemn publicly the protest being organised by a small section of ‘supporters’ to take place prior to Saturday’s vital Blue Square Bet Premier game against Newport County at Sincil Bank Stadium.
It seems that some of these ‘supporters’ are motivated by a desire to undermine the Board of Directors and to put the Club’s Blue Square Bet Premier status at risk in the process is, quite simply, a disgrace.
The outcome of such actions will almost certainly have a detrimental effect on the players and now, more than ever, is the time for positivity not negativity from everyone who has the future of Lincoln City Football Club at heart.”
The protest however didn’t play any part in the performance of the Imps as they beat Newport County 2-0.
