MAN V FAT

 

MAN v FAT Football is designed round building teams to play in a 14 week league, playing  football (usually 5 a side) on 3G pitches, FA qualified referees are employed and a coach holds weekly weigh ins.  There is also online support available to players about nutrition, mental health and other issues. Games are held on Monday evenings at Edgehill Road, Harraby with weigh ins/food diary checks at 18.30 and the games are played at 19.00 and 19.30 (30 minutes long) and if a player is not able to last for the half there are always ‘subs’ ready to swap in to give them a breather.
