Imps face tough start to 2015/16 campaign

Lincoln City’s 2015/2016 season fixtures in the Vanarama conference have been announced today.

The Imps kick off their season with a home game at Sincil Bank against one of last year’s relegated League Two side’s Cheltenham Town on Saturday August 8.

Lincoln City start with Cheltenham Town at Sincil Bank on the opening day of the season.

This is followed by consecutive away games at Braintree Town on August 11 and Eastleigh on August 15.

The Imps face a tough visit from last season’s playoff final losers and rivals Grimsby Town on August 29, followed by a trip to newly promoted Guiseley A.F.C. on October 3.

Lincoln City will be looking to avenge the back to back defeats inflicted by Chester last season, when they travel to the Deva Stadium on October 10.

FC Halifax Town visit Sincil Bank on Boxing Day, with the Easter weekend taking The Imps away to Tranmere Rovers before a home game against Gateshead.

Lincoln City’s penultimate game of the season sees Chris Moyses side host Woking Town, with The Imps then wrapping up their campaign as they began, facing Cheltenham Town.
