Lincoln City’s FA Cup success

Until recently Lincolnshire didn’t have much to brag about regarding sports. The best the county had to offer was the amazing fact that Gainsborough Trinity hadn’t been relegated or promoted from the same league for 145 years.

And then Lincoln City brought in two reserved brothers to manage the team. Danny and Nicky Cowley had left their jobs as PE teachers to become managers full time.

They quickly made an impression and soon enough they were facing Arsenal in the quarter finals of the FA Cup. This documentary, which went out on Lincs FM in March 2017, follows the story of the competition. This was nominated for an IRN award for best sports coverage the following year.
