Lincoln and Hull have a lengthy history stretching back to December 1905, when Hull left Sincil Bank with a 4-1 win in their debut season in the Second Division. Hull have a slight edge with 32 wins to City’s 31, due mainly to an almost total dominance in those early fixtures. Lincoln won just one of the first seventeen meetings, suffering some heavy defeats along the way. Despite rising up the leagues during the last twenty years, Hull have only one victory over Lincoln in the fourteen meetings since 1997.
Playing links between the two clubs are naturally common, given the short distance between the two cities. Lee Warren, Martin Carruthers, Matthew Bound, Richard Peacock, Gavin Gordon, Colin Alcide, Gary Brabin, Jon Whitney, Jason Harris, John Schofield, Nathan Peat, Jason Perry, Lee Philpott, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Matt Bloomer, Scott Kerr, Jamie Forrester, Dean Keates, Paul Musselwhite, Simon Russell, Richard Hinds, Kevin Ellison, Delroy Facey, Jack Hobbs, Cameron Stewart, Trevor Carson, Jonny Margetts, Sam Clucas, Charlie Andrew, and Eric Lichaj have spent time on the books of both clubs within the last thirty years.
