The news will come as a further blow to Lincoln City fans after club legend and current Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth appeared to rule himself out of contention after a statement released yesterday committing him to the Wycombe cause.
Lincoln have been searching for a new manager since the Cowley brothers left for Huddersfield Town last week and Flynn and Ainsworth were thought to be their top targets.
If the tweet by BBC Wales is correct, and it should be said there is no accompanying article or source, it could be that the Imps have lost both of their prefered candidates in the last twenty-four hours.
The Imps travel to Rochdale tonight under the temporary charge of Jamie McCombe having won only once in their last seven games across all competitions.
This news could be a big blow for Lincoln who looked rudderless on Saturday.
The Cowley’s built something special at the club, and it was always going to be challenging to replace them.
Flynn was a hot favourite for the job, but it now seems the Imps will have to look elsewhere for a new boss.
It is a club on the up but could it be that managers do not want the pressure of following in the very large footsteps of the former teachers?
No explanation is given by the tweet but we are sure more will quickly follow
Only time will tell, but Lincoln fans will be hoping for some better news very quickly.
