Lincoln City line up Arsenal Impvasion for one more shock in golden FA Cup run

An FA Cup run to the quarter-finals for Lincoln City and a match against Arsenal have brought unbridled joy and excitement with hopes for another upset“It just seems to me that, at the moment, whatever we do as a football club turns to gold.” Wonderment, rather than hubris, colours Bob Dorrian’s turn of phrase. Five years ago the Lincoln City chairman had to make his own luck, putting in £500,000 of the earnings from a successful career in poultry export to save the club from administration and possible oblivion; half a year previously he had survived an extraordinary general meeting and vote of no confidence from club shareholders. An emotional return on his commitment has been some time in coming but at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday the payback will exceed anything that, since exiting the Football League in May 2011, anyone at Sincil Bank might have thought possible.
