Football Developmenet


We run a series of development centres across the region, using the Lincoln City coaching syllabus to develop individual skills and match awareness. Our Development Centres are open to all young footballers who want to learn and improve their skill level.


Our team of coaches will focus on a different theme each week, as we look to improve the technique and understanding of all positions in the game. These themes are then reinforced in small-sided matches.


The Development Centres follow the FA Four Corner Model of football: Technical, Physical, Social and Psychological. Open Development Centres also offer a first step on the Lincoln City FC player development pathway to our Advanced and Elite sessions. All players in our Development Centres will be continuously monitored for inclusion in our Advance and Elite Development programme.

I've loved training with the Lincoln City Foundation.  When I was in the Advanced group, I learnt about the importance of defending and it inspired me to work hard in the Elite Development Centre to become the best defender I can be. 


I did a year at the ADC and a year at the EDC. I really enjoyed both and was pushed by the high standard of coaching and other players


I learnt the importance of playing as a team and working together as one unit.  Whilst trying my best in every session and listening to my coach.

I learnt to keep the ball better and to make new friends from different places. I also learnt a solution to different cases in football.
