Lincoln City fans won’t forget Keith Alexander | Letters

The current success of Lincoln City in the FA Cup has inevitably brought to mind similar achievements in the 1970s when the late Graham Taylor was manager. However, your headline (a quotation from an Imps fan) suggesting that the Cowley brothers have made the “biggest impact on the city and club since Graham Taylor” (Sport, 28 January) disregards the contribution of the late Keith Alexander, who led Lincoln to four consecutive League Two finals and two play-offs at the Millennium Stadium between 2002 and 2006. As importantly, he was a respected and dignified member of the community until his death aged 53 in 2010, his contribution to the life of the city being recognised by the thousands who attended his funeral in Lincoln Cathedral.
