The Lincoln City F.C. manager Danny Cowley is over the moon after his Football League Two club will play against a Premier League side

Football League Two club Lincoln City F.C. will visit English Premier League team Everton on January 5th.

The match will be part of the FA Cup Third Round.

And for Lincoln manager Danny Cowley, this is the best possible fixture the team could have got.

“It’s going to be a fantastic day for our supporters to be going to a Premier League club, and no doubt they will fill the away end,” Cowley told Redimps.

“It creates more profile and builds excitement for our wonderful football club.”

“We love the FA Cup and to get to the Third Round for the second time in three years is a great achievement,” Danny added

“It’s going to be great for our players to come up against Premier League opponents, and pit their wits against not only the best players in the country but some of the best in the world.”

“Everton is a really good draw, but ultimately we’ve got six really important league games between now and then, so all of our focus is going into them,” he commented.

“But once January comes around, and following the Port Vale game, we can start to look ahead to the Everton fixture.”
