STMI Urges All Imps To Make Nuneaton Roll Call
Saturday at Nuneaton is simply massive and a must see game. But even with the Imps set to travel in numbers, we need as many of us as possible to roar the lads onto a vital victory. With Gary doing the miles to see the Telford V Gateshead no score draw last night (three Bucks fans pinged us that he was there with his little pad taking notes) and leading by example, we need to show our team that we are as one – to will this club back to greatness. Believe, keep the faith, because if Simmo has a budget similar to the one Holdsworth enjoyed, STMI’s money is on the play-offs next season.
We are talking about a relatively short 73 mile drive to the Midlands. If 4-5 are travelling in a mid range car that averaged 40 MPG and are paying £6.36 per gallon (1.40 per litre) for your petrol then the cost for this trip based on an estimated driving distance of 71.98 miles (115.81 kms) , from Lincoln to Nuneaton for your fuel would be in the region of £11.44 each way. With 4 passengers that would be £5.72 each for the round trip plus £14 / £10 / £5 / £2 admission and of course a bit of food and beer.
Between 300 and 500 could make the trip as Gary Simpson’s barmy army aims to move within 5 points of the safety target of 12 points. It could be a cheap and awesome away-day if we pool our resources.

The Imps are seen as a CAT A game but the prices are still well below that of Sincil Bank. Concessions are classed as over 60’s and full time students and children are under 16’s. There is a further discount for under 12’s. Seating prices are £2 more this is paid inside the stadium allowing transfer to the Main Stand seated area (get there quick as it only holds 514 with just 50 going to away fans.

Nuneaton will see the game against us as a key opportunity if they are to prove their BSP credentials. They have only lost to Kidderminster (0-1) in the last five games, so a win over the Imps could set them up for a month that could then see 8-10 points. Let us hope not as their April looks as clement as ours did last season.
