The last team to be discussed that is advancing to the FA Womenís Super League is the Lincoln Ladies Football Club. Started in 1995, the Lincoln LFC has gone by several different names since it was founded. The team was originally known as Lincoln City Ladies Football because of their relationship with the menís Lincoln City FC. Beginning in 2008, the team went by the name OOH Lincoln Ladies for a period of two years.

When the Lincoln LFC first began, they belonged to the East Midlands Combination League. The team continuously demonstrated their skills and quickly rose up the league ranks. By 2002, they had made it all the way to the FA Womenís Premier League National Division. By the 2007/2008 season, the team finally advanced all the way to the semi-final of the FA Womenís Cup after having narrowly lost every year since 2006. After coming in second in the 2009/2010 FA Womenís Premier League Northern Division, they have earned themselves one of the eight spots in the much anticipated upcoming 2011 FA Womenís Super League.

The Lincoln LFC currently plays their home games on a field in cooperation with the menís Lincoln United FC on Ashby Avenue. With Lincoln LFCís move to the FA Womenís Super League, there are plans to split playing time between this field and that located at Sincil Bank. The team used this field during their 2002/2003 season. From the 1999 to 2002 seasons, all the teamís home games were played at Station Road in Collingham, Nottinghamshire. Current notable players who represented the 2009/2010 team include: Laura Cooper (team captain), Casey Stoney, and Kylie Davies.
