Former Lincoln City skipper Dean Walling on his hopes at the club's new Former Players' AssociationIt was great to be back Sincil Bank as a special guest for the Port Vale game recently. I did a question-and-answer session in the Fan Zone before the game and was re-introduced to the crowd on the pitch. It’s always nice to be appreciated and it was good to see a few old faces and get looked after. As an ex player, that’s what you want.
The sight of football fans from rivals clubs happily rubbing shoulders shortly before a big match would have been unthinkable in the not-too-distant past. It still wouldn’t happen at certain grounds in this country, but it is a regular occurrence at Sincil Bank these days. Venture into Lincoln City's Fan Zone before a game and you’ll routinely see fans of both clubs mixing together in a trouble-free environment.
Boston United’s re-arranged National League North fixture against Southport will take place at The Jakemans Stadium on Saturday (3pm). The match will be staged seven days on from the original postponement due to frost which denied the Pilgrims a quickfire chance to record back-to-back wins against the struggling Sandgrounders, who are managed by former Premier League striker Kevin Davies.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
