Lincoln City defender Andrew Boyce would be happy to act as emergency goalkeeper
Andrew Boyce has revealed in the case of emergencies he would have no problem with slipping on the goalkeeping gloves.
The Lincoln City central defender is reported to be the club’s nominated stand-in custodian for times when Paul Farman is injured during a game and boss Gary Simpson does not name a substitute goalkeeper.
And Boyce admitted to previously having a go between the sticks during training.
“I wouldn’t mind getting the gloves on,” said Boyce. “I’m not saying I am brilliant, Alan (Power) will tell you, I can let a few in, but I can make a few good saves.

“If that situation arises (an injury to Farman) I wouldn’t have a problem going in goal.
“But I also enjoy getting up front. It’s sometimes nice to get out of the back four, out of the nitty, gritty stuff and have a bit of fun up front.
“Obviously, I know if I go up front, it usually means we are probably losing the game and that’s not nice. But if I go up front I like to think I would cause a few problems. I can be a target man.”
Boyce will be hoping his services up front or in goal are not required on Saturday when the Imps visit the Aggborough Stadium for a Skrill Premier clash with second-placed Kidderminster Harriers.
“Kidderminster are a good, strong footballing side from what I remember from last year,” said Boyce. “They have some good players there, especially their attacking players. It will be a tough game but if anyone is capable of going there and getting a win it is us.
“ We are not conceding goals and that is a good reputation to have, but it might be nice to maybe sacrifice that a little bit and score a few more up the other end. You have to score to win games. It’s not just about being defensive .”
