Could blue plus red mean a purple patch?
At one time the signing of a player from Gainsborough Trinity would have produced a fair few groans from under-whelmed fans but the Blues were within an ace of joining the Imps in the premier league so the capture of one of their up and coming young players should be regarded as something of a coup perhaps?
We all know what the problems with the team are and they have been the same for some time so the signing of a centre half has to be viewed as a good thing. My colleagues in Boston tell me that the rough and tumble in the Blue Square North has to be seen to be believed sometimes so Andrew Boyce our new defender will hopefully be quite used to dealing with similar tactics in the league above.
We’re not used to the squad coming together quite so early and it’s certainly got a bit of shape to it now so hopefully a little bit of optimism might be allowed whilst always accepting that this is a marathon we’re competing in, not a sprint. York City have shown that patience is required and that, together with a certain midfielder who should never have been allowed to leave Lincoln in the first place, have paid off for the Minstermen and there is really no reason, given time, why Lincoln City should not regain league status too.
