Rhead joined The Imps in the pre-season of 2015, from Mansfield Town and immediately endeared himself to the supporters with his attitude and work rate along with his eye for goal. ‘Rheady’ netted a brace in only his second game for the club, in a 3-1 win away at Braintree before going onto bag himself a total of 23 goals in his first season in City colours.
Rhead leaves Lincoln after making almost 200 appearances for the club and netting a total of 50 goals.
We have been in conversation with Lincoln for short while and this is a deal that suits all parties and gives Matt the chance to play plenty of football.
He is a Lincoln City legend and we can’t wait for him to starting playing for Billericay.
Thank you to Lincoln City for working with us to make this deal happen. It’s a great move for all involved.
