FA Tube Map honours former Lincoln City boss Graham Taylor
Lincoln City legend Graham Taylor, Skegness-born England goalkeeper Ray Clemence, ex-Boston United midfielder Paul Gascoigne and England and Lincoln Ladies skipper Casey Stoney have all been recognised on a new Football Association Tube Map.
As part of their 150 year anniversary celebrations, The FA have linked up with Transport for London to produce a special edition of the iconic map.
Each of the capital’s 367 Tube, DLR and Overground stations have been renamed after legendary names from the game in the country.
Wembley Park has been renamed Alf Ramsey, Leystone becomes one of its famous sons David Beckham, while Upton Park is named after 1966 World Cup-winning captain and West Ham United great, Bobby Moore.

And Lincolnshire is well represented, with ex-Imps boss Taylor appropriately taking over Watford, the club he left City to join, on the Metropolitan Line. Ray Clemence occupies Archway on the Northern Line, while much-travelled Gascoigne is perfectly located at Heathrow Terminal 1, 2, 3 on the Piccadilly Line.
Stoney is on the Victoria Line along with a host of other famous women footballers, with her name being swapped for the well-to-do station of Pimlico.
“I’ve gone up in the world,” said Stoney, who is one stop up from England women’s goal-getter Kelly Smith (Vauxhall) and just down from Paolo Maldini (Victoria).
“Where I was brought up, my nearest stop used to be Morden at the end of the Northern Line. I do know Pimlico a bit from my time at Chelsea, but it is certainly a bit posh.
“It’s a massive honour to be included alongside such iconic names from the game. I also think it’s brilliant that women’s football has its own line, that certainly would not have been the case in the past.”
Graham Taylor has alighted at Watford, the club he left Lincoln City to join in 1977. He is just up the line from Roberto Mancini (Croxley). The Metropolitan Line is now the Managers’ Line.
Lincoln Ladies and England Women’s captain Casey Stoney has the privilege of being located in the well-to-do area of Pimlico. She is north of the river from Kelly Smith (Vauxhall). The Victoria Line is for women footballers.
Skegness-born Ray Clemence is Archway on the Northern Line (the Goalkeepers’ Line).
Paul Gascoigne, who featured for Boston United in 2004, is well situated if another jaunt to Italy or China takes his fancy having being placed at Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3. He is part of the Midfielder Line which replaces the Piccadilly Line.
