Calling on all Lincoln City fans... We need your help.

17 July 2018

We are urgently looking for families within the City or living North of the city near Riseholme who could provide accommodation for Lincoln City scholars from July to May with immediate effect.

Lodgings should provide good quality accommodation, ideally but not essentially in the Riseholme area, which provides a safe setting for the scholars to live during their weekly training schedule.  The scholars will be aged 16-18 and they will be in a full time role with Lincoln City Football Club, as well as working towards gaining a BTEC qualification, of course with the ultimate aim of becoming full time professional footballers.

Away from the football pitch and the classroom, having a settled home environment is just as key to the development of these young people so you could really make a large impact with the Imps’ stars of tomorrow, meaning you could be directly contributing to the long-term success of Lincoln City Football Club.

We are also looking for families who could provide accommodation on a more ad-hoc, and shorter-term basis for trialists, especially in pre-season and during the recruitment process for scholars from January to May.  This is something that we are keen to begin to organise as soon as possible.

If you are interested in either of the opportunities and feel that you are able to help the club in this way please contact for further information and details of remuneration for the role.

Lincoln City Football Club is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all accommodation providers to share this commitment. This role involves work with young people and is subject to police Criminal Records Checks (CRC) via the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).  This will include vetting at the highest level.  Clearance through The FA Criminal Records Checks (FA CRC) system is required.  As such this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) and the applicant must disclose all previous convictions including spent convictions. (In line with any filtering requirements). Two written references will also be required. Applicants, in addition, will need to demonstrate that the accommodation meets certain safety standards.
