Lincoln League


#1

Is anyone joining the Lincoln league that’s here at all? … Just signed up but currently isn’t a live league yet.

Hi
Welcome to MANvFAT! Good to have you here :slight_smile:

The Lincoln league is still one of our planned leagues and you can view the league homepage here: https://www.manvfatfootball.org/lincoln

It is still quite low in numbers so the main thing is the more that register - the quicker it will get up and running - so if you have any friends or colleagues who may be interested - refer them over! If you do it from the league homepage you can give your friends 50% off MAN v FAT Football Registration and get £5 credit at the MAN v FAT Shop!

In the mean time check out our new members post here:

Good Luck!
Mike.

I’m paying up to join the Lincoln league when i get back off hols in August.

@mikechristopher

are you able to say how many we have and how many we need to get a league off the ground? I will start scouting players at work.

@DanDN21 i already play on Tuesday nights down in Sleaford if you fancy getting involved, we’re always short on players, could do with an extra for tomorrow night in fact!?

Just a friendly game. Mixed players. Couple of under 21s, most mid 20s - mid 30s, one older geezer sometimes plays, i’m the only truly fat guy (21st), although manage to hold my own. Footballing brain makes up for lack of mobility. :wink: Next heaviest i guess is probs 15 - 16st.

@Milligut - at the moment its very low with only 2 registered - generally we would look for at least 20 in order to start getting the ball rolling on it (so to speak!)


#5

That is low. :confused:

No worries, sure we’ll get there.

I live in Lincoln and love football. It’s what first got my attention with this website.

I would be keen to be involved but have reservations about my knackered knees.

I have lost nearly 70lbs since I joined here and have just started running again. So far my knees are holding up but would be worried about the contact element of the football (that’s how I did my knees 20 odd years ago).

If I didn’t play I would certainly be involved in some capacity.


#7

@Brickhouse you don’t have to play to be involved!


#8

Back off holiday and now paid up ready to play.

If anyone wants to join the Lincoln league but get 50% off registration fee then this link is your friend

How many have we got signed up atm?

Contacted local public health team ages ago but never got a response. :frowning:


#9

Still only a few of you registered sadly @Milligut

:cry:


#11

Hi, I’ve just signed up and am interested in the Lincoln league. Do you have to pay before your interest is registered?


#12

Hi Pete,

Yes, have to pay beforehand. Guess it splits those who are a semi-interested from those who are bang up for it. :ok_hand:


#13

Thanks, can I play in the Nottingham league until the Lincoln one becomes active and then just transfer over?


#14

I have heard of people playing two leagues before but @admin will be able to confirm.


#15

Hi mate yeah you can play in the Nottingham league then swap when something more local comes up.

Lots of people play more than 1 league or start a new league then finish their original one at the end of the 14 week season.

Nottingham is starting to fill up nicely now and I should be on BBC Nottingham radio in the morning promoting it.


#16

Ok, I’ve paid and registered as part of the Lincoln league to get the numbers up. How do I go about also joining the Nottingham on in the meantime. Do I have to pay twice?


#17

Yes you would need to register twice with 2 different email addresses unfortunately we have no way around it at the moment.


#18

I have now joined the Nottingham league too - hopefully it worked but there was an error at the payment stage and now I can’t get back to that page so I’m not sure how registered I am.

On a separate note, I have a few contacts within personal health and at the Echo so am working to raise the profile and get some more locals to sign up. I hope that’s OK and I’m not stepping on any toes.


#19

Evening, I’m trying to sign up after being referred by IrishPete but it keeps saying theres an error and won’t let me. Any advice?

Incidentally I manage a Youth Centre in Lincoln (well North Hykeham if being picky) as part of my role with Lincolnshire County Council, and we have a 3G 5-a-side pitch that could be available depending on time and day, and approval with manager. Is there a particular person/email it’s best to discuss with? and is a 5-a-side pitch big enough?


#20

Football@manvfat.com is your best contact for both of these queries. We play 6 aside but out pitch sizes vary massively from venue to venue so I’m sure your pitch would work.
