Jake Park, Lincolnshire FA Football Development Manager, said: "Whilst we will continue to do all we can to protect, support & better the traditional 11 v 11 format of the game on a Saturday & Sunday, Linx11s is a great opportunity for those who cannot commit at a weekend.
"Flexi-Football has proven to be incredibly popular in other counties due to its innovative & low commitment nature. It’s a great opportunity for existing players who want to play more football in a fun environment, and also a way to engage or perhaps re-engage with those players not involved or who cannot or do not want to commit to the traditional, more structured opportunities.’
