The non-league football calendar will look bare today due to Lincolnshire being placed in tier four by the Government.

A number of leagues which involved clubs from the county have postponed action until at least January 13, when the next tier reviews should be announced.

Among those leagues are the United Counties League, where Boston Town, Sleaford Town, Holbeach United, Deeping Rangers, Bourne Town, Blackstones and Pinchbeck United ply their trade, and the Northern Premier League, home to Stamford, Spalding United and Grantham Town.

The Northern Counties East League, where Skegness Town compete, has announced action has been suspended until the same date.

The Lincolnshire League is currently suspended and was hoping to resume this month.

Local leagues will also be on hold as adult team sports cannot continue in tier four.

Elite sport - step two and above of the National League system - can go ahead, meaning Boston United, whose game at Alfreton has been postponed, and Lincoln City will continue their campaigns.

However, all matches will be played behind closed doors.

North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire remain in tier three.
