    Lincoln lift trophy

    And the trophy is lifted on Wembley's royal balcony to cheers from the bumper travelling support from Lincoln.

    What a tremendous few seasons this has been for the Cowley brothers. Can they use their win to spur them on for a second successive promotion?

    FT: Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Lincoln celebrate

    Tremendous scenes post-match as Lincoln drink in a first win at Wembley in their history.

    What a way to do it. They weathered the storm from an excellent Shrewsbury Town side and Danny Cowley's side will lift the Checkatrade Trophy.

  8. LINCOLN WIN THE CHECKATRADE TROPHY

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Lincoln fans

    That it. It's all over. Elliott Whitehouse's first-half goal has won Lincoln City the Checkatrade Trophy.

    What a return on the Imps' first visit to Wembley!

    Meanwhile the wait goes on for Shrewsbury who have lost each of their four appearances at the national stadium.

  9. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Sean Long replaces Matt Green as Lincoln see out this final. One minute remains.

  10. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Arthur Gnahoua delivers a free-kick into the box which almost meets Toto Nsiala at the near post, but he's brought down and the ball sails out of play.

    The Shrewsbury man is struggling with cramp at the end of this game. Warrior.

  11. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Lincoln v Shrewsbury

    Five minutes have been added on. Can Shrewsbury take it to extra time?

  12. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    It's been a fine season for Shrewsbury Town and Paul Hurst, but the way these final stages are going, it looks as if Lincoln could become the fifth fourth-tier side to win the Checkatrade Trophy.

  13. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Five minutes to play. Can Lincoln lift the Checkatrade Trophy on their maiden visit to Wembley?

    It's looking good, so far.

  14. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Alex Rodman goes on a mazy run towards the Lincoln box but he's brought down by Lee Frecklington, who earns a yellow card for his troubles and concedes a free-kick 35 yards out.

    Shaun Whalley fires straight into the wall, however, and there's an audible sigh from 12,000 Shrewsbury fans.

  15. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Elliott Whitehouse could have added a spectacular goal to his tally this afternoon.

    With his back to goal and a marker on his tail he tries to turn and volley a high delivery goalwards, but it misses the target.

    Lincoln look the more comfortable going into the final 10 minutes.

    Shrewsbury fans

    It might be one of Wembley's smaller crowds, but there's certainly no shortage of noise.

    Shrewsbury's 12,000 following from Shropshire might be more than doubled in size by the 26,000 army of Lincolnshire fans.

    But they have certainly made themselves known. And the Shrewsbury team have responded well since the break - and Imps boss Danny Cowley has just had to give it a bit of the old double windmill on the touchline to get his side's supporters roaring raucously again.

  17. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Last roll of the dice? Shrewsbury's Nathan Thomas comes off for Stefan Payne.

    15 minutes of normal time remain in this game. Can Lincoln hold on?

  18. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    This game is getting tetchy. Toto Nsiala brings down Ollie Palmer to a chorus of jeers from the Lincoln supporters.

    However the free-kick that follows is easily collected by Dean Henderson.

  19. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Shrewsbury's Shaun Whalley plays through Bryn Morris to shoot on the edge of the Lincoln box but it fires off a Lincoln body and out for a corner.

    Omar Beckles strikes from the corner that follows but again it's high and out of play.

    Meanwhile, Alex Rodman replaces Bryn Morris.

  20. Post update

    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    Danny Rowe is the second player to be taken off by Lincoln in as many minutes. He's replaced by Harry Anderson.
