Hailing ‘Team Lincoln’, a Whites spokesman Mark Hall said: “While the players deservedly claim the accolades on the pitch having won six out of seven games during the month of March, the off-field team deserve massive credit too for working so hard behind the scenes to run the club. Well done to everyone involved with Lincoln United, you are a credit to the club.”
