Lincoln City Allan Pearce helped New Zealand's Under-23 side further enhance their prospects of qualifying for next summer's Olympics, to be held in Greece.


The match against Tonga, which was played at the Harbour Stadium in Auckland last night, ended in a 2-0 victory for New Zealand. Pearce started the match operating behind the front two strikers in an attacking midfield role, thereby allowing the former under-17 star the freedom to roam in support.

In the 35th minute, it was Pearce who provided a pinpoint cross for Rochdale winger Lego Bertos to score New Zealand's opening goal. Right on the stroke of half-time, Steven Turner scored New Zealand's second after a good team move had created the opportunity. Pearce was substituted in the 73rd minute for Jarrod Smith, in one of several second half alterations made by New Zealand coach Ricki Herbert.

Having won all their previous Oceania Olympic Soccer qualifying group matches, New Zealand will face Vanuatu on Thursday night in a group-deciding clash

Lincoln City's midfielder Scott Willis has agreed a move back to the North-west, joining Conference strugglers Northwich Victoria on loan.

Last week, in order to finance Marcus Richardson's move from Hartlepool, Willis along with striker Rory May were made available for loan, while Mark Camm, Dave Coulson and Chris Davies were released. Willis is set to make his Northwich debut alongside fellow new signings Craig Mitchell and Stephen Nicholas. Northwich, as well as being formerly managed by current Imps' boss Keith Alexander, also include former Lincoln City players Mark Foran and Chris Ward in their squad.

A popular figure at Sincil Bank but has a habit of blotting his copybook through stupidity. Last month, he was declared AWOL after going on trial at Stockport in mid-November for two-weeks yet failing to reappear at Sincil Bank until the final week of December. Imps' acting-manager Gary Simpson later agreed that his earlier declaration of Willis being AWOL was a "misunderstanding" but it would seem that Willis has to make this loan work or else his days at Sincil Bank are numbered.

Willis began his career as a trainee at Wigan Athletic in August 1999 and has also had spells at Mansfield Town, Carlisle United and Doncaster Rovers. After his release from Carlisle in September 2001, he first joined Bamber Bridge before moving to their UniBond Premier rivals Droylsden on a free transfer. He made only one Football League appearance prior to joining Lincoln City, which was as a substitute for Carlisle against Luton Town, when he played for six minutes.

Willis' determination endeared him to the Imps' faithful early last season, however, his temper was easily lost and this cost him his place in the side. As well as being threatened with the sack by Imps' manager Keith Alexander, he also received a five-match suspension in December 2002 for a reckless challenge during the game with Cambridge United. This suspension cost him his place in the Lincoln City first team and he has struggled to dislodge the current midfield players. This season, he has made only four substitute appearances for Lincoln, bringing his total of appearances for The Imps to 40, with 3 goals scored.

Whizz this is like one of those CM games :)

On a sadder note though ...
Lincoln City were the team that played Bradofrd the day Valley Parade caught fire and lots of fans died :(

Lincoln City played York and one of the players had a heart attack and died, he also used to play for the Cobblers too, so I remembered it.

Unlucky team Lincoln.
