Imps fans will be shocked and saddened to hear of the untimely death of Richard Butcher.

Butcher became a great favourite in his first spell at Sincil Bank and it was no surprise when he eventually moved up a division to join Oldham Athletic, his performances in red and white certainly meriting a chance in a higher league.

The North West did not entirely suit him however and Imps fans were glad to welcome the popular midfielder home for a loan spell where he rejoined his mentor, Keith Alexander.

Butcher was later to rejoin Lincoln City in a permanent deal, signed by Peter Jackson, but it was for his initial stay that he will be particularly and most fondly remembered.

The Lincoln correspondent knows that his fellow supporters will want to join him in offering our most sincere condolences to Richard's family, friends and colleagues at Macclesfield Town and the wider football community.
