The East Lincs Football Combination League will return to action next month, it has been confirmed.

Action will resume for clubs after plans were rubber stamped at a full league meeting, carried out via Zoom.

However, the league will not be running at a full complement.

“We unfortunately had three clubs - Ludford, GB Kitchens and Manby, who are unable to re-start on Saturday, April 10,” said league secretary Michael Gamble.

“Our re-start is still dependent on the Government dates being confirmed.”

The full fixture list is available for clubs to view on the FA Full Time website, and it is hoped the three divisions can be wrapped up by end of May.

With Ludford, GB Kitchens and Manby opting not to continue this season, there will be re-jigging to do in the top two divisions.

The Spectrum Print Division One will be down to nine teams but, with Ludford yet to play this campaign, results will not be affected.

GB Kitchens and Manby both play in the Philip Jackson Division Two but, again, neither had taken part in a league match to date this term.

The league will now have seven teams competing.

Meanwhile, the Brian Todd Homes Division Three will continue with seven sides.

The East Lincs Football Combination have become an FA Charter Standard League, which recognises the hard work of the clubs who are working to improve grassroots football.

Most of the member clubs are now Charter Standard and those who aren’t are being encouraged to look at the requirements to progress as a football club.
