A Lincoln City fan wore a pink bra at The Lamex during the Imps game with Stevenage at the weekend.
Simon ‘Sid’ Chanter wore the ladies underwear in the away end during the League Two match on Saturday that the visitors won 2-1.
His bizarre act of donning women’s undergarments was to make a point about the club’s stewarding against Lincoln’s near neighbours Grimsby Town last month when it was alleged female Marines fans were asked to show their bras during security searches before the game.
Speaking to the BBC ‘Sid’ said: “I asked one steward if he wanted to check my bra and he just looked a me.
“The only thing they asked is that I take my hat off so they could look under it.
“After that story about Grimsby fans having their bras checked at Stevenage, you not only think that males stewards should only check male fans and females check females, but why would you need to check a woman’s bra?
“After a few Lincoln fans said they were getting bras to wear, I thought I’d better buy myself one.”
