The Lincolnshire Derby, also known as the Lincs Derby, is the footballing rivalry between the teams in the ceremonial county of Lincolnshire, England: Lincoln City, Boston United, Gainsborough Trinity, Grimsby Town and Scunthorpe United.

History[edit]

Blundell Park,
Home of Grimsby Town since 1898.
Sincil Bank,
Home of Lincoln City since 1895.
Glanford Park,
Home of Scunthorpe Utd since 1988
York Street,
Home of Boston United since 1933.
The Northolme,
Home of Gainsborough Trinity since 1873.

The derby was contested on 3 January 1884 when Grimsby Town played Lincoln City[12] at Clee Park in Grimsby. Grimsby won the game 1–0. Scunthorpe United's first game was a 1–0 away defeat to Gainsborough Trinity in 1930. Trinity debuted themselves in 1886 against Lincoln City in a 2–2 draw in the FA Cup. Boston United debuted in 1953 with a 9–0 defeat against Scunthorpe United, which is the record score from a Lincolnshire derby.

In recent years the derby has tended to be between Grimsby Town and Lincoln City, due to them both playing in Football League Two and the Conference National and Gainsborough Trinity versus Boston United in the Conference North. Grimsby and Lincoln have faced each other in tiers 2nd to 5th of the English football league system, making this rivalry the most enduring.

Games between Grimsby Town and Scunthorpe United are also called and noted as the Humber Derby, which is a separate local rivalry shared between themselves and Hull City from the north bank of the Humber estuary. Other Lincolnshire clubs also have minor derbys which are contested between the likes of Grantham Town, Spalding United, Lincoln United, Sleaford Town, Holbeach United, Boston Town, Stamford, Grimsby Borough, Louth Town, Bourne Town, Lincoln Moorlands Railway, Skegness Town, Cleethorpes Town and Nettleham, but all clubs play in divisions lower than the 6th tier of English football. In addition the five original teams are the only teams from the county who have ever played in the Football League.

Games played in the pre-season tournament the Lincolnshire Senior Cup do not count as Lincs derby as games in the competition are not viewed as competitive fixtures.

The most recent derby took place on 1 January 2018 with Gainsborough Trinity holding Boston United to a 1–1 draw at The Northolme, Gainsborough.[13]

Crossing the divide[edit]

The following lists include players who have made appearances for both Lincolnshire sides. If a player has been signed for both clubs but failed to play for both as in the case of Joby Gowshall[14] or Andy Smith[15] for Lincoln City and Grimsby Town then they are not included. If a player has played for one, but failed to make an appearance for the other, then he is included. Players do not necessarily have to have played in a Lincolnshire derby to be included in this section.
