The Imps won the Checkatrade Trophy in front of 27,000 of their supporters despite going into the game as underdogs against a Shrewsbury Town side flying high in League One. Lincoln City waited 134 years to get to Wembley – but for many it was well worth the wait!

All proceeds raised will go directly to the horses in the charity’s care.
