Highest Ever Position?

1901-02 - Lincoln City achieved what has proved to be their best ever League position to date - that of fifth in the Second Division.

If you think you know the circumstances go to the Forum thread to discuss!

1904-05 - Lincoln City made it to the last 32 of the FA Cup but were beaten by Manchester City for whom the legendary Billy Meredith scored the only goal.

1907-08 - Lincoln City along with Stoke City are relegated out of the League, there being only two divisions in the Football League at that time. The Imps finished bottom with only 21 points from 38 games and were replaced by Chesterfield.
