It’s been two days since Lincoln City announced that Luke Waterfall had joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Waterfall, who joined The Imps from Wrexham in the summer of 2015, made 137 appearances and scored 16 goals during his three-year stay at Sincil Bank.

My views: We (Vital Lincoln City) were extremely lucky to sponsor Luke Waterfall during his time with The Imps and it is a great shame to see him go. In life, though, if we’re offered the opportunity to better ourselves, to work at a higher level in the industries we are in, we simply must take it.

We have, since Danny and Nicky Cowley joined, become a club that players can come to knowing they can improve and move on to better things. Luke made a lot of progress under Danny and Nicky and his hard work has been rewarded.

Good luck in the future, Luke!

Views from 100% Imps:

“As for Luke, and as I’ve alluded to in the Summer Transfer Rumour thread, this isn’t a Woodyard or Raggett type departure i.e. you can’t replace them easily.

It’s a little bit of Robinson (can we get someone else in so close to the deadline (I know loans are through to end of August)) and a little bit of Farman (done well for us, but *potentially* better out there despite what he’s achieved here).

A 3-year deal for him at a League One Club is crazy. His Agent has worked his magic (hat) there!

Wish him all the best, though. That non-league, graft hard, sort of mentality has got him where he is. Having moved into the FL from Trinity with Scunny and then given a kick in the nads to have to go back to the NL to work his way up again shows the mentality that he has. An old-school defender who loved defending.

Whether that’s quite going to work in an Askey side remains to be seen.

Good luck and thanks, Luke!”

berksimps: “Good luck to Luke, and what a great contract his agent appears to have got for him. He has some great memories to take away and we have some great memories of his tremendous work ethic and the success he shared with the Imps.”

Everyone at Vital Lincoln City would like to thank Luke for his efforts during his time at Lincoln City Football Club, and wish him all the best for the future!
