Gainsborough Trinity Football Club are an English football club based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. The club was formed in 1873 by The Reverend George Langton Hodgkinson, Vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Gainsborough, and was originally known as Trinity Recreationalists. In 1889 they joined the Midland League, and finished 7th in their first season. In the 1890-91 season the club finished as Champions, but had to wait until 1896 to be elected to the Second Division of the Football League. They remained members for sixteen years (a period in which all of their matches against Chelsea were played), but they have played non-league football since being voted out of the league in 1912, and replaced by local rivals Lincoln City. The club was a founder member of the newly-created Conference North in 2004.
