Lincoln City to Raise Funds for Lee Beevers When they Take on the Saddlers

2:32 pm Tuesday, 11 July 2017  
Lincoln City have confirmed that the upcoming pre-season clash between the Saddlers and Imps will be a benefit match for defender Lee Beevers, who is currently recovering from a severe injury which he collected during Lincoln's victory over Boreham Wood in October 2016.
Lincoln City have confirmed that their upcoming pre-season friendly against Walsall, which will take place at Sincil Bank on Saturday, 29th July, will be a benefit match for former Saddler Lee Beevers, who suffered a serious injury whilst playing for the Imps against Boreham Wood last season.

33-year-old Beevers, who made forty first-team appearances during a one-season spell with the Saddlers in 2011/12, suffered a ruptured patella tendon during the Imps' 2-0 victory over the Wood last October and has fought his way back to be able to resume running as he seeks to get back to full fitness.

City hope to raise funds to support Lee and his family as he works to get back to fitness, with the aim of removing any financial pressure allowing the defender to work on resuming his career in the future.

Lee, a former Welsh Under-21 international, has made over for-hundred and seventy appearances over a career which has seen him play for Ipswich Town, Boston United, Colchester United, Walsall, Mansfield Town and Lincoln City, where he is currently enjoying a second spell.

Speaking via Lincolnshire Live Imps boss Danny Cowley says a benefit match is just reward for Beevers, who has had two spells at Sincil Bank, he said; "He’s shown great commitment to the club and his two spells warrant that. Lee got injured playing for the team and putting his body on the line for the club. We wouldn’t have got promoted without Lee’s contribution.

"So I feel we need to do the right thing by Lee by offering him this match. We’re hoping the money we raise will help him and his family financially and give him that extra time to get fit."
