Former Essex PE teacher Danny Cowley will manage in the Football League for the first time next year after guiding Lincoln City to promotion from the National League.

Cowley, who used to teach at the Fitzwimarc School in Rayleigh, has had a remarkable first season at Sincil Bank since leaving Braintree Town to join the Imps - sealing promotion and making the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

His brother Nicky has also played a key role as his assistant.

Lincoln secured the National League title by beating Macclesfield Town 2-1 this afternoon.

It means they will be back in League Two for the first time in six years next season.

Ipswich Town should have midfielder Cole Skuse available for their Good Friday trip to Burton Albion.

The 31-year-old missed the recent games against Wigan Athletic and Fulham with concussion, but has now recovered.

Adam Webster, Steven Taylor, Luke Hyam, Jonas Knudsen and Giles Coke remain sidelined though.

Cole has trained and he is fine. He was the only one we were waiting on, everybody else is fine for Friday.

We had 21 players out training this morning which is great to see, so we have a full squad to choose from.

– Mick McCarthy, Ipswich Town manager
