The Seventh Division currently have room for two new teams to join next season, following the promotion of Grantham Town Academy to the United Counties League Division One and the withdrawal of Epworth during the campaign.

At present, FA rules mean the Lincs League can only accommodate 18 clubs, although more could potentially be accommodated as plans to introduce a second division have not been ruled out.

“There are applications from new clubs,” confirmed league president Julian Rinfret.

“There are places for two but more than two applications. They have to go to the committee and we will take care of it.

“We’re only allowed 18 in a division, but there’s talk of looking at a two-division system, but how do we get there? We’re looking at that right now.

“We have the league at a good level, people, enjoy it and it’s strong and solid.”

After two seasons cut short by Covid, clubs started last season with a busy schedule, but Mr Rinfret believes the decision was justified due to the end of the campaign.

“We got away with it,” he added.

“When we started last August, Covid was still there and we were watching the matches and wondering if we were going to play them.

“Editing secretary Terry Knott wanted to finish the season and some teams started Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday-Wednesday, but we all finished and dusted it off.”
