Club Ethos

Our mission is to champion women’s football, providing opportunities for girls’ and women to play football at the highest levels within a caring and professional club. We will achieve this by:

Building girls’/women’s self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth

Developing teamwork and leadership skills

Encouraging respect for others and develop a sense of fair play

Facilitating the provision of the best coaching, playing amenities and equipment available to us

Providing a clear pathway for new and developing talent


Lincoln City Women FC has evolved over the period of time since the Clubs conception in 2008. We started life as Nettleham Ladies FC and entering the Lincolnshire County Women’s League in the same year. In 2009, the club won the Lincolnshire County Women’s League and were promoted to East Midlands Women’s Football League Division One North, where we remained until 2012.

For the start of 2012/13 season we gained promotion as league champions and we were duly promoted to the East Midlands Women’s Football League Premier Division, where we competed until 2017/18 season. Another title winning season was followed by our first season at Tier Four of the women’s football pyramid in 2018/19 and we have continued to dominate the Lincolnshire Women’s Senior County Cup by winning it in each of the last six seasons.

The summer of 2019 was a land mark in the development of the Club as a successful name change to Lincoln City Women FC meant a total rebranding for the 2019/20 season and a change of Club colours to the famous red and white stripes.
