However, the Buildbase FA Vase early round draws were completed recently and we have been awarded a home draw to Lutterworth Athletic from Division One of the United Counties League. This match will be on Saturday 31st August.
Lutterworth Athletic were established in 1983 as a youth team under the name Lutterworth Juniors and Youth. In 1993 a senior team was formed when the oldest age group reached adult football age. They joined Division Two of the Leicester & District League, and won the division in their second season, earning promotion to Division One. A fourth-place finish in Division One in 1996–97 saw the club promoted to the Premier Division. However, they were relegated back to Division One after a single season in the Premier Division.
In 2000–01 Lutterworth were Division One runners-up and were promoted to the Premier Division. They were Premier Division champions in 2004–05, earning promotion to Division One of the Leicestershire Senior League. In 2008–09 the club finished second in Division One, resulting in promotion to the Premier Division. After finishing as runners-up in the Premier Division in 2011–12, they were promoted to the East Midlands Counties League. At the end of the 2012–13 season they were transferred to Division One of the United Counties League. They finished in 6th place in the Division One table last season.
