As next season approaches the LIFL under 18 League welcomes any applications from local clubs with under 17 or under 16 age group teams looking for well organised Sunday male youth football in and around Lincolnshire.

“We have run three regional divisions and a Premier division for the more senior clubs,” said a spokesperson.

“Also early applications from interested clubs or sponsors are sought for a new under 21 Lincolnshire football competition to be formed next season, starting midweek in August.

“Several senior clubs have shown interest in this exciting development for Lincolnshire and the FA’s bid to strengthen football in our area,” they added.
