Black had a disappointing time at Grimsby in the 2000-01 campaign, for after featuring several times early on he fell out of favour following a change of management. He moved on loan to Lincoln City in October where he linked up once again with his old boss Alan Buckley and proved an asset to the Imps on the left flank with his accurate crosses and set-piece balls giving a good service to the front men. He subsequently returned to Blundell Park when his four-week loan expired but spent the remainder of the campaign in the reserves. He was reported to have signed a two-year contract for the Imps in May following his release by the Mariners.

Black's Lincoln City contract was cancelled by mutual consent in October 2002.
