Nottingham East Midlands is quite a bit nearer Lincoln. You'd need to get the airport bus to Nottingham station from where there is an hourly (I think) train service to Lincoln.

Or fly to Humberside airport & catch the train from Barnetby. Not sure if the train is direct..........

If you come into Humberside, Barnetby station is 3 miles or so away from the airport and so a short taxi ride will be necessary. But once you reach the station, the train is a direct train to Lincoln and the journey only takes 30 minutes or so.

Birmingham has a station next to the airport but to get a train to Lincoln involves 2 changes and takes between 3 hours and 3 hours 30 minutes.

May be too late to say that there is also a flight to Doncaster airport which is not too far away either? Not sure about the train link, though.
