History of Hykeham Tigers

Mike Moore thinks about getting into football club, but struggles because he is relatively new to football and is miles below the required ability level to compete. Mike never got a chance to play football growing up, because he was always told he wasn’t good enough to get into a team.
South Lincoln JFC is born. 4 children turn up to the first training session.
After visiting local fates to recruit players, South Lincoln JFC have their first friendly, which results in a 24-0 loss for Hykeham Tigers FC against Toft Newton.

14 More games followed throughout that season, and the club soon got it’s first victory.

At the AGM in 2006, it was agreed the club would be renamed to Hykeham Tigers FC
