GROUND HISTORY adapted from "The Ultimate Directory of English & Scottish Football League Grounds"
 
Lincoln City FC moved here from John O’Gaunt’s in 1895 and by 1900 the facilities included a main stand on the east side and covers on the west side and at the south end. The venue also hosted cricket, athletics and cycle races and in 1902 a cinder track was installed and some stands re-sited one of which, the main stand, blew down in 1908. Later improvements included the construction of a new main stand, the replacement of the south stand in 1929, following a fire, and the installation of a cover at the north end. In 1956 the latter was extended around the north east corner and the record attendance of 23,196 was subsequently set at the Football League Cup Round 4th Round Replay v. Derby County (0-3) on November 15th, 1967.

Sincil Bank saw major changes in the 1980s and 90s with the construction of new all seat stands on each side of the ground and at the start of the 2007/8 season it had an all-seat capacity of 10,130. The pitch size was 110 x 73 yards.

If using Public Transport: The longer way from the train station is around a 19 minute walk to the ground unless you take in the pubs on the High Street. Turn 'left out of the train station and walk up to the traffic lights, turn left at these traffic lights onto the High Street, walking over the railway level at the crossing, keep walking for 10 minutes before turning left into Scorer Street, then walk along Scorer Street until you come to a bridge across the river, then turn right immediately after crossing the bridge onto Sincil Bank, the ground is straight ahead. The short way is to come out of the station and turn right to go down the road. About 30 yards ahead on your right you will see some steps and a bridge over the railway. Go over the bridge and once on the other side cross the car park walk down by the river, then take the path up to Stencil Bank and follow the road down to the ground which is on the left.
