Adding a default heading to each new Wordpress Post

Hi All

I am creating a knowledge base with about 100 posts and this has come along nicely.  However, when I click to create a new post  would like to add 3 lines of text by default at the top of each post as follows when they are being created.

1) 1st Line of text
2) 2nd Line of text
3) A pull down menu containing the name of the team the post 'owns'

I have searched through the custom posts plugins but most are either years out of date or over complicated for whats required.  Maybe I can add shortcode to put a pull down list into a post when creating it

Sorry, so I meant as I click the create a new post these 3 lines will display at the top of the post and the author can then continue to type below these.

I will take a look at ACF tonight

Thank you for your advice
So you want those three lines to be part of the post eventually?
Yes I want them to display automatically at the top of each new post
You could possibly do some clever stuff using the "content_edit_pre" filter.
Thank you  William,

ACF seems a good plugin, not finished playing around with it yet.

I may go back to basics and simply categorise posts by department / alphabetically

Once again thank you for your assistance.  I will leave the clever suggestion for now until my knowledge and understanding has improved
