Nick Sleaford has been named as the Boston Saturday Football League’s Referee of the Year - equalling the record number of wins.

Sleaford received the accolade at the league’s recent annual general meeting.

It is the fourth time he has won the top official title, equalling the record previously held by Brian Smith.

Man in the middle Sleaford also won the Referee of the Year title in in 1998, 2004 and 2007.

The Alf Stones Memorial Award for the best club secretary went to Fosdyke’s Andy Hardstaff.

The Eric Johnson Memorial Award for the most sporting team was awarded to FC Kirton.

This was their second successive reward for outstanding behaviour on the football field.

The award is based on disciplinary figures from Lincs FA throughout the season.
