Player Ratings 2013-4 Best XI

The Imps used thirty players during the 2013-14 campaign, but if you could pick a best eleven out of them what would it be? Using ratings provided by fans throughout the season I've put together what looks like a fairly solid XI. I've applied a slightly arbitrary minimum of five appearances to this, basically to allow the likes of Delano-Sam Yorke and Thierry Audel but cut out players like David Preece, who put together just ninety minutes over the whole campaign! I have also decided to make it a formation that would actually be possible to play - City were pretty short in midfield in terms of good scores so rather than playing seven at the back this was the way forward!

Best XI (Imps 5-2-2-1)


Nick Townsend 6.68

Tom Miller 6.78
Andrew Boyce 6.63
Nat Brown 6.35
Thierry Audel 6.83
Sean Newton 6.57

Charlee Adams 6.23
Jon Nolan 6.21

Jake Sheridan 6.13
Delano Sam-Yorke 7.34
Ben Tomlinson 6.41

Not a team Gary Simpson ever quite had the luxury of fielding especially with Andrew Boyce departing mid-season, but not a bad side! The surprises might be Jon Nolan - who sporadically featured and occasionally looked a little lightweight - and to an extent Jake Sheridan. Those two are the lowest scorers but both did well towards the end of the campaign, particularly Sheridan. Alan Power's mixed season (5.82) meant he couldn't break into the midfield while next in line up front was actually Chris Sharp (6.11)!

I was going to do a worst XI but it's a bit harsh on quite a few players, especially when there are a lack of players in certain positions. Nonetheless fans will be pleased to note that most of those who would have been included are leaving the club this summer.

Aye. Only started posting photos in articles about a week ago. Hadn't really bothered with it before then!
