Millers on the March - Lincoln City

Last updated : 10 January 2008 By Deano
The brief history and build up to the game

This is our first trip to Sincil Bank to take on Lincoln in a League Fixture since a 2-1 opening day defeat in 1999, when Paul Warne netted a stunner of a goal which sadly only proved to be a last minute consolation.

Many of our users will remember the season before that on Boxing Day '98 when a Jason White goal 8 minutes from time infront of a packed away end saw us pinch a 1-0 win with both teams pushing for promotion at that time of the season.

Its in the Co-op main stand that we'll be housed this time around, and although the facility to pay on the day is available there are still plenty of tickets left on sale at Millmoor until 5pm Friday, for prices then click HERE.

Directions to Sincil Bank

From the North:
Take the A15 or A57 into the City Centre, then follow signs for High Street and turn left for the ground.

Where to drink and eat

There are plenty of watering holes on the High Street into town, the most popular choices if you aren't wearing colours being The Weatherspoons (Ritz), the appropriately named Millers Arms or the Golden Eagle.

For a more family orientated atmosphere the Trust Suite at the ground which is formerly known as the Centre Spot does good food and decent bitter and lagers. Grub inside Sincil Bank is good but was a tad expensive on our last visit last pre-season, although there's a selection of hot dogs, pasties, pies and a very good bacon butty if you get there early enough as well as chilled soft drinks on tap.

MillersMAD wishes all our users a safe trip.
