LIMERICK’S Paudie O’Connor (Clarina) is EFL League One Lincoln City captain for 2023/2024.

But despite taking the armband, the recently turned 26-year-old believes there are a number of senior figures amongst the squad who will share responsibility.

He told the club’s website: “You maybe have more responsibility off the pitch now compared to just leading on it, but there are a number of lads like Adam Jackson or Ted Bishop who are senior and will take on those roles of responsibility around the place too.

“It’s not a one man band in that sense, there is definitely a leadership group who will set positive examples.”

Lincoln have their opening home game of the season when Wycombe Wanderers to their 10,700 capacity Sincil Bank on Saturday.
