Lincoln City F.C. are nicknamed the 'Red Imps', after a creature from local legend. The club was officially founded in 1884 as an amateur association, following the disbanding of Lincoln Rovers. Lincoln City turned professional in 1891-92, having already had some impressive FA Cup runs, twice finishing in the last 16. The club moved to its current home at Sincil Bank in 1895, having played originally at the John O'Gaunts ground. The club joined the Football League Division Two in 1892 as founder members, achieving their best ever Football League finish in the 1901-02 season when they finished fifth in the Second Division. A notable period in the club's history was from the 1930's to the 1950's, when they were crowned Division Three (North) champions three times. In 1975-76 they won the Division 4 championship under the guidance of England manager-to-be Graham Taylor, setting a number of league records in the process. In 1987 Lincoln were the first victims of the introduction of automatic relegation from the Football League. The team had to wait only one season to return via the same system, however, beating Barnet to the Conference championship by winning the last game of the season. Lincoln had not topped the table once in the season before wining the final game!
