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.
