Lincoln City have bid a fond farewell to keeper Paul Farman as he leaves Sincil Bank to join Stevenage.

The 29-year-old made 228 appearances during his six permanent seasons with the Imps, including making more than 50 appearances during their National League title-winning campaign.

The experienced Farman made 18 appearances in all competitions in Lincoln’s first season back in the EFL, playing an influential role during their Checkatrade Trophy victory.

Manager Danny Cowley told the official Lincoln City website: “We think an awful lot of Paul, but he wants to play.

“He’s worked so hard to get into the Football League, and played such a big part in the year we won promotion, we just believe he deserves this opportunity to go to Stevenage and be their number one choice.

“He’s been brilliant for this football club, he’s been a fantastic servant, and very loyal to us,

“We just felt that it was the right thing to do, it’ll be a loss to the squad, but it’s the right thing for him and his family.”
