Good luck Jacko and thanks for everything. Bring on Coidy's testimonial!

Best of luck to Jacko for the future, been a good servant to the club. Best of luck to the others leaving as well and thanks for the contributions that they've made during their times here. Lastly, I hope that Wilesy has been offered a new deal because Larry wants him to stay and not because we're trying to get a good fee for him.

I see GTF is still under contract for next season. What sort of season has he had he was a great favourite at Sincil Bank, he has done well for himself he was languishing in Orients reserves when Lincoln signed him.
