Lincoln City players return to training

Having all tested negative for Covid-19, staff and players at Lincoln City FC returned for training yesterday.

This means that pre-season training for the beginning of Lincoln’s second campaign in League One can begin, after they finished 16th last season.

The players are entering stage two protocol, which allows the squad to start contact training on the pitch.

Strict guidelines are still in place on entry.

As Lincoln City players returned to the grounds for training, they were greeted at their cars by staff wearing full PPE.

Their temperatures were checked before they were allowed to enter.

Regular cleaning of equipment was also carried out throughout the day.

A spokesperson for the club took to social media to document the days proceedings:

The day marks the first full training session for James Jones, Lewis Montsma, Ethan Ross and Conor McGrandles, who all joined Lincoln City FC over the last few weeks.

The 2020/21 season is due to start on the weekend of September 12.

The second half of the 2019/20 season was played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is not yet clear how the next season will go ahead.

A statement issued by the Lincoln City FC chairman yesterday said:

“Whilst we do have confirmation that the 2020/21 league season will begin on the 12th September 2020, we still await guidance on whether crowds will be allowed within LNER Stadium.”

He also thanked fans, especially season ticket holders, for their patience.
