Lincoln & District Sunday Football League
The Lincoln & District Sunday Football League is an amateur football league in Lincolnshire, England. It was founded in 1923 and currently has over 100 teams competing in 10 divisions. The league is affiliated to the Lincolnshire Football Association.
The Lincoln & District Sunday Football League was founded in 1923 by a group of local footballers who wanted to provide a more competitive environment for Sunday football in the area. The league initially had just four divisions, but it has since grown to its current size of 10 divisions.
The league has seen some famous players come through its ranks over the years, including former England internationals Paul Gascoigne and David Beckham. Gascoigne played for the league's New Holland side in the early 1980s, while Beckham played for the league's Barton Rovers side in the late 1980s.
The Lincoln & District Sunday Football League currently has 10 divisions, divided into two tiers. The top tier is called the Premier Division, while the bottom tier is called Division 10. The top four teams in the Premier Division at the end of the season are promoted to the Lincolnshire County League, while the bottom four teams in Division 10 are relegated to the Lincoln & District Sunday League Division 1.
The league also has a cup competition, called the Lincoln & District Sunday Cup. The cup is open to all teams in the league, and the winner of the cup qualifies for the Lincolnshire FA Sunday Cup.
