Update time.

You are pretty much there with seven of the questions.

Still awaiting answers for:

5. Did Lincoln City sign the wrong man? Who was he?

6. Which club record is held by Paul Farman?

8. What amounted to £671,000?

Answers (and explanations) on Friday.

6. Another guess.....is Farman the most named substitute without getting onto the pitch in the clubs history
That is possible, but it is a disingenuous statistic, considering seven subs are named now and the goalkeeper is only there in case of injury to the guy on the pitch. I'm not sure anyone really monitors that.

I am tempted to say Tony Simmons may hold the record for a single season.

I'll have a stab at the Farman one? Conceded most goals for a Lincoln keeper?

It was the sub goalkeeper aspect that sprung to my mind on this but fair enough. The only other thing that came to mind was most appearances in a pink shirt but I decided against that one

8..again a stab in the dark. Is this the total spent by city supporters for tickets to the Checkatrade final in April......30000 average out around £22 each

5. I've a vague idea there was once an occasion when a visit was made to another club to sign a player and the deal fell through owing to some sort of mix-up and another player was signed from the same club instead.

Can't remember where or when.

Or I may have imagined it.

Anything to do with Alan Harding?
