Lincolnshire Ability Counts League
The Lincolnshire Ability Counts League is an amateur football league for people with disabilities in Lincolnshire. It is run by the Lincolnshire Football Association and is currently in its ninth year of competition.
The league operates four divisions, with opportunities for both male and female participants. Players are put into divisions based on their ability, not their disability. This means that players with different impairments can play together and against each other.
The league works on a festival basis, with teams coming to central venues across the county over the season to compete. The results from each festival are collated and added to previous festival results to produce league tables and overall winners.
The Lincolnshire Ability Counts League was founded in 2015 by the Lincolnshire Football Association. The league was created to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to play football and to promote inclusion and participation in sport.
The league has grown steadily since its inception and now has over 50 teams competing in it. The league has also expanded to include female-only and youth divisions.
