Lincoln City Managers In Stats

With no football and the snow halting Holdworth’s assault on the upper regions of the Blue Square abyss, how about a look at the managers he is trying to emulate? And for sure those we most sincerely hope he will surpass.

‘S’ denotes the status of ‘Secretary Manager’, one who organised all but the team selection. This essential task was undertaken by non other than the Board of Directors .  Harry Parkes just edges (bow please) the great Bill Anderson in percentage win terms.  Bill has the most wins – 307 – as he took us to the second Division and a golden era where we punched above our weight. That is the Imp way after all.

  1. Average Points Per Game Since 26th May 1987 by Manager Type

    Managers with no previous connection to the club :
    7 Managers averaging 1.12 points per game
    (Clarke, Beck, Buckley, Jackson, Sutton, Tilson & HGoldsworth)

    Managers steppign up from playing (or beign chairman) for the club:
    4 Managers averaging 1.16 points per game
    (Keith’s 1st spell, Westley, Reames, Stant)

    Managers returning to the club, either as a previous manager or as a previous player:
    5 Managers averaging 1.41 points per game
    (Murphy’s 2nd spell, Thommo, Ellis, Keith’s 2nd spell, Schofield)

    I know you can use Stats to tell the story you want. Bu this tells me that having a connection a feelign a love for teh club makes a difference.
    Maybe the fans respond better = a better atmosphere = more points
