Sean Raggett is the best player in League 2 (Will’s Worldies #2)

Sean Raggett is a centre back from Lincoln City who outshone most of his teammates in the Imps’ historic season. He is not exactly a player that comes to mind when you are talking about the world’s best players, however, he is attracting big transfer fees from even bigger clubs. In most people’s opinion he is the most underrated player in the Imps’ side.

Raggett stands at six foot and five inches tall and is currently 23-years-old. He is also number 25 for Lincoln City.

Throughout most of Raggett’s youth career he was playing for League One side Gillingham before joining the Imps in their memorable season which saw them reach the FA Cup quarter-finals. Raggett was a key part of Lincoln’s solid defence which only let a few goals past from either quality pieces of play or longshots which were too powerful for Paul Farman.

He shows great fight for his team and is always up for a challenge whether it is a header or a sliding tackle. The Englishman’s commitment is second to none – he could be half dead and would still play on. Earlier in the season, Raggs had two teeth knocked out yet still refused to come off as he thought that it ‘wasn’t worth it!’

As recently as a week ago he has attracted the attention of West Ham (a Premier League side which have carried on being solid throughout the past 5 years) so that just shows how good he is!

From centre back, he scored five goals last season including the legendary goal which sent Lincoln City through to the FA Cup quarter-final. At Gillingham he only scored three more over a four year span.

Raggett is a complete legend for Lincoln who will be remembered by most as long as they live. His goal against Burnley is just one example as to why he is nothing short of a hero!
