"In Past Imperfect, former Lincolnshire Echo football writer Brian Halford takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride through the turbulent history of Lincoln City Football Club.
Immaculately researched, Halford's book traces the story of The Imps from their roots in the burgeoning local football scene of the 1870s and 1880s through to the beginning of the 21st Century, chronicling along the way the history of a lower league club shrouded by joy, despair, tragedy and no little humour.
Halford uncovers some fascinating stories and people as the proud founder members of the Second Division of the Football League survive a yo-yo existence for more than a century.
Tales of financial penury, match fixing, egotistic chairmen, incompetent managers, personal tragedy and sheer bad luck illuminate this marvellous book as Halford elucidates the part played by Lincoln City by characters as diverse as Nikolai Gogol, Billy Meredith, John Foster Fraser MP, George Robledo, Billie Jo Spears, Graham Taylor and even a Torquay police dog!"
Book in very good condition.
