Local Lincoln and District League players could put their feet up today (Sunday) as the competition enjoyed a festive break.

It is a chance for squads to reflect on the first half of the season - and look forward to various challenges during the remainder of the campaign.

In Division One, both Woodhall Spa United and Wragby FC will be aiming to climb the table when they return to action.

Woodhall Spa have climbed to seventh place in the table with four wins from 12 fixtures. However, they have played more games than any of their rivals.

Wragby FC were among the early season promotion favourites but a recent slump in fortunes has seen them slip into the bottom three.

One area of concern for Wragby will be the fact they have conceded 42 goals in nine games - the second worse record in the division.

In Division Two, Horncastle based AFC Harpars appear to be well placed for a strong title challenge.

Newly promoted Harpars are in second place, just a point adrift of long-time rivals Trent Valley who also have a game in hand.

Bardney FC have shown encouraging sings of improved form in Division Four recently and have moved away from the danger zone.

Horncastle Town’s young Development XI have also strung together some encouraging performances in Division Five and boss Mark Simmonds will be hoping his players can cement a top four position.
