Donington on Bain Football Club

Donington On Bain Rovers Football Club is an English amateur football club. It was founded in 1948 by villagers enthusiastic about football, replacing a succession of unofficial village teams. The club has since its foundation participated in local competitions, winning all but the 'Village Trophy', a contest in which it has several times lost in the final match. The club has traditionally attracted supporters and players from surrounding villages, including Donington On Bain, Louth, and the larger city of Lincolnmarker.

The pitch off Main Road is home for 'The Bainers' and has been since 1948. Although the pitch doesn't have an official name, or capacity it is effectionately called 'Donington Park' by locals, players and staff.


Local Villages Ludford and Scamblesby are 'The Bainers' biggest rivals. This is mainly due to the clubs location to each other, although, as in many other rivalries throughout the country, games have become heated in recent years.
