It looks like it’s a two-way relationship between us and Lincoln. Fulham have taken young defender Graham Hutchison on a month’s trial having sent a number of bright young prospects down to Sincil Bank since Ian Pearce joined Chris Sutton’s backroom team.

Hutchison seems highly rated. He’s been called up to Scotland under-17 side and made his reserve team debut this season. Sutton certainly seems to rate him:

He’s a good young player and it’s a good opportunity. There’s nothing set in stone but he’ll go down for a few weeks, they can have at him and he can have a look at them.

The Beeb article also highlights the pedigree of Lincoln’s academy.
