This season will be the first in charge for new manager Matt Easton (appointed in September 2018), ably assisted by Director of Football, Bob Don-Duncan, U21 Development Squad lead-coach Lewis Thorogood and Lead Physio, Richard Storey. Management hope to build on the success of 2017/18 when the Tulips managed to retain their Step 4 status, despite encountering choppy waters throughout the campaign. In 2016/17 the management team oversaw the club's highest ever finish, since it's formation in 1921, after a narrow 2-1 defeat to Witton Albion in the NPL First Division South Play-Off Final.
Kick-off times for home games on a Saturday throughout 2018/19 are scheduled for 3.00pm with midweek fixtures most often being 7.45pm on a Tuesday (sometimes Wednesday, subject to Emirates FA Cup/Buildbase FA Trophy/NPL Integro League Cup/Lincs FA County Senior Cup rules).
Subject to midweek fixtures, training is set to take place each Tuesday & Thursday (venue to be determined by management) from 7.00pm sharp. Players are advised to arrive at the dedicated ground not less than 30 minutes before training commences!
In the event of adverse weather during the season, First Team players should contact the Manager/Coach directly to confirm whether training/matches are postponed, cancelled or re-arranged for any reason.
