DI Suzanne Davies, from Lincolnshire Police, said: “This was a protracted police investigation that went to great lengths to track down every single offender involved in the violence on that day.
“Its success was largely down to the tenacity and professionalism of PC Andy Pearson.
“All of these offenders are thugs who masquerade as football fans.
“ give decent, law abiding home and visiting fans a bad name and they have rightfully been brought to justice.
“We hope our investigation and the subsequent convictions and sentences send out a very clear message to offenders in Lincoln and those visiting to cause trouble.
“We will arrest you and put you before the courts.”
