Hi excited for the league to start - what happens at registration?


Looking forward to this,I’ve missed playing football,can’t wait to get active again,just need to get myself some boots now


Hope we get some decent strikers; I’m a Keeper, and I shall look forward to the challenge!


Haven’t played football since I was a kid but if you’re looking for an unfit, mediocre at best defender I’m your man!

Really looking forward to this.


Glad the Chelmsford league is starting at last. Be good to have some more Essex teams for Colchester league to have challenge matches against in the future!


Hi guys - just signed up this morning. Already written off 2018 as my “fat year” so I’m looking forward to making 2019 my “healthy year” instead! I was playing footy with some mates for a few weeks but had to stop as I was so unfit that I couldn’t contribute and was becoming a hindrence to the team, which really sucked. The ManvFat format sounds like it’s just what I need. Looking forward to February!


I’ve jsut signed up. I started at the Colchester league a month ago and enjoy it so much I wanted to do another one !!


Just signed up for Chelmsford. Really looking forward to this. Anyone know what happens at the registration?


Just signed up also. Looking forward to playing football again. See you in February.


Due to a work trip I’m likely going to miss registration and the first week of the league, does any one know how much a drama this could be?


Hi all. Just signed up for the Colchester league but as it’s full I’ve been asked to transfer to Chelmsford league. Looking forward to get going!


Hi guys, is it too late to join this league?


No, there are still places. Ask to join the All-Blacks team, we need an extra player. And if you sign up using this link, we both get a fiver off our fees!
By the way, I’m Ian, the All-Blacks captain. You will be very welcome.


Hi, looking to sign up and join the Chelmsford league. How does it work? I mean do I just turn up once registered or do I get allocated to a team? Only just come across ManVFat so not entirely sure how it works.


Just register (or give them a call to ensure you are dealt with quickly) and then you will be allocated a team depending on numbers. there are still a couple of teams with spaces. We play every Thursday at Future Soccer - Sandon. Kick-offs are 1900, 1930, 2000, 2030 each week, You play one 6 a side game each week lasting 28 minutes. try to arrive 30 mins before kick off time to be weighed. Thats about it. Most people dont know each other so we are all just a bunch of men forming a team and friendships.


Thanks man, sounds good!


Is it too late to apply ? Me and my old man would be interested in coming along if there is space!


Cheers mate. I will use that link.


Ive just signed up. What do i do next? How can i ensure i join the all blacks?
