Promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking is arguably the collective objective from everyone involved in the club.

Which teams do you think will finish in the bottom four in League One?
Fleetwood Town, Cambridge United, Crewe Alexandra and Doncaster Rovers.
What are your thoughts on Lincoln City?
Lincoln City are a good team. You did so well to get to the Play-off final last season and I really liked some of your players who helped to get you there. Even with the losses of Grant, Johnson etc, Lincoln have remained strong and have a squad capable of going for the Play-offs again.

Most embarrassing moment: I can’t actually think of one on the top of my head in all honesty although I’m sure there are examples of this!

Do you have a Supporters Trust and what role do they play at the Club?
We do have a supporter’s trust and although I don’t fully understand their role, their official role really is to protect and enhance the future of this wonderful football club.

My favourite match was when we beat rivals Oxford United in the 2020 Play-off Final to get promoted to the Championship.
