Lincoln City have drafted in Bristol Rovers attacker Bernard Mensah on a season-long loan deal this afternoon.

The 23-year old only joined the Gas in January, but has found his chances limited. a late cameo as a sub on the opening day of the season against Peterborough is the extent of his involvement this season.

That also went for Sam Slocombe, the Rovers keeper who played in that game, but later joined the Imps on loan.

Mensah was a Watford trainee and played on loan for Barnet and Braintree before securing a move to Aldershot. He lined up against Lincoln twice as they won the National League, with his goals enough to catapult Gary Waddock’s men into the play offs, where they lost to Tranmere.

Danny Cowley had spoken of looking to add one more to his squad today, so that should conclude the Imps business this summer.

They’re currently top of League Two and face third-placed Exeter City this weekend.

Our View

Mensah has a lot to prove, but he certainly impressed at Aldershot and maybe League One was a step too far,

If anyone can get the best out of him, it is Danny Cowley. He’s already reaping the rewards of signing Bruno Andrade this summer, another National League play-off attacker.

Mensah should be right at home at Sincil Bank.
