Lincoln City goalkeeper Paul Farman is the future
David Holdsworth hopes Lincoln City will "look after" sensational young goalkeeper Paul Farman after revealing his delight at his performances.
The Imps chief has been thrilled with his summer signing, who scooped the man of the match award in Tuesday's goalless draw at Mansfield.
Farman's displays have left him top of the Echo's own player of the season competition and he has become a huge hit since joining the club on a free transfer from Gateshead.
As his performances continue to attract attention as well as an England C cap, Holdsworth said the sky is the limit for the 22-year-old.

"Last year, when Joe Anyon was our goalkeeper, he was sent off against Alfreton which forced me to bring Paul in on loan," he said.
"It's fair to say nobody really knew much about him then, but I think everybody who has seen him play certainly knows about him now.
"For me, I believe he can go as far as he wants to go because he has so many outstanding attributes.
"He's mobile, he's strong, he's agile and not only that he is learning all the time.
"Paul is a very good young goalkeeper and I hope Lincoln City look after him."
Holdsworth will be hoping Farman will be at his inspired best again when the Imps travel to high-flying Wrexham at the weekend.
City are stuck in the bottom four and are two points adrift of Kidderminster in 21st place.
But an encouraging goalless draw at Mansfield on Tuesday has given Holdsworth hope of securing a shock result against the Dragons.
"It is another game against high profile opposition," he said.
"There are huge expectations at Wrexham especially having had such a great season last year.
"I suspect it will not be too dissimilar to last year's game which was tight for large periods, but in the end we lost 2-0.
"But we will make sure the players are light on their feet and ready to compete in what will be a tough game.
"But we go there with good confidence especially after a solid performance against Mansfield."
Meanwhile, head of youth Grant Brown and director Chris Moyses will continue to aid Holdsworth in the dugout after coach Michael Jolley left the club.
"I'd like to thank Michael for his efforts," he said.
"It is nice to have Chris and Grant alongside me and I hope that continues.
"They are passionate about the football club and they are good people.
"It's important to have a settled backroom staff because I've not really had it since being here, so hopefully we can all develop the football club."
