Having formed officially as an amateur association in 1884 after the disbanding of Lincoln Rovers (formerly Lincoln Recreation), football in the city of Lincoln had in fact been prominent since the 1860s (although not strictly connected to the modern day club). The first game Lincoln played as an amateur team at the John O'Gaunts Ground, a ground that wealthy local brewer Robert Dawber provided and rented out to the club, was an emphatic 9–1 victory over local rivals Sleaford, on 4 October 1884. George Hallam set two records for the club that day. He scored the first ever goal for the club, and also the first ever hat-trick. Their first competitive game at home also ended in an emphatic manner, beating Boston Excelsior 11–0, with Edwin Teesdale scoring four goals. It was at this time initially, where, before the club gained entry into the Football League and professional status, the County Cup was their main priority. They got their hands on it for the first time in the 1886–87 season with a 2–0 replay victory over neighbours Grimsby Town (the initial match had finished 2–2).
We all love Grimsby Town, There our inspirations!
Lincoln then soon helped to form what was then the Second Division in 1892–93 season as there was an increasing amount of clubs wanting to join the Football League. Their first game in the Football League was a 4–2 away defeat to Sheffield United on 3 September 1892.<ref>{{cite news | title=Shoot, ''The ultimate stats and facts guide to English League Football'', p.130 | author=Steve Pearce | publisher=Boxtree | year=1997}}</ref> Their first home game was also against Sheffield United, this time, however, Lincoln won 1–0. The first game at Sincil Bank in 1895, after moving from the John O'Gaunts Ground due to Dawber's death, was a 0–0 friendly draw with local rivals, Gainsborough Trinity. The first competitive fixture at the ground was against Arsenal, the game ended 1–1.
In January 1907 The Imps knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup after a replay. Managed by [[David Calderhead]], two late goals salvaged a home draw in the first leg. In the replay in London, an injury time goal by [[Norrie Fairgray]] took Lincoln through. Chelsea returned at the end of the season to poach Calderhead to become their manager.
Up until the 1920s Lincoln spent most of their time swinging between the Second Division and the more localised leagues, the Midland and also the Central league. After then, however, in the 1921–22 season, Lincoln, along with several other clubs from the Central and Midland leagues, founded the Third Division (North). The newly founded league and the Second Division would take turns in becoming Lincoln's home up until the early 1960s where they would drop a further division to the Fourth Division in the 1962–63 season. Formed in 1884 as an amateur association, Lincoln turned professional in the [[1891–92 in English football|1891–92]] season. Originally they played at the John O'Gaunts ground, however, in 1895 they moved to their current ground, Sincil Bank.
Their championship honours include three [[List of winners of English Football League Two and predecessors|Division 3 (North)]] championships in [[1931–32 in English football|1931–32]], [[1947–48 in English football|1947–48]] and [[1951–52 in English football|1951–52]], a [[List of winners of English Football League Two and predecessors|Division 4]] (now [[League Two]]) championship in [[1975–76 in English football|1975–76]] (when they were managed by future [[England national football team|England]] manager [[Graham Taylor (football manager)|Graham Taylor]]).
It was the [[1975–76 in English football|1975–76]] season where the club broke the record for most points for a whole season when 2 instead of 3 points were awarded for a win with 74 points in total (this was and still is the record amount of points achieved under the 2-point system); the record of winning the most games (32) and losing the fewest (4), was also set.<ref>{{cite news | title=Shoot, ''The ultimate stats and facts guide to English League Football'', p.56 | author=Steve Pearce | publisher=Boxtree | year=1997}}</ref><ref>{{cite news | url=,,10794,00.html | title=The Official Football League Website | publisher=The Football League}}{{dead link|date=August 2010}}</ref><ref>{{cite news | url=,,10440~546463,00.html | title=Record Breakers & Makers 1967–1987| publisher=Premium TV|work=Lincoln City FC Official Website}}</ref> City also become the first club in nearly a decade to score over 100 league goals (111 in total). They also won 21 out of 23 home league games in this season (the other 2 were drawn) and also won 11 games away from home, another impressive bout from the club. It was the season where, Graham Taylor recalls, "teams were petrified of coming to Sincil Bank".<ref>{{cite news | title=Past Imperfect, ''The Story of Lincoln City F.C.
