Good Afternoon All,

I have just joined the Doncaster league, how many is there registered already?

Is it looking likely this league will go ahead as I know a couple have struggled to start off and I’m just curious/excited to get going and lose some weight!

Many Thanks


Afternoon Brandon,

We currently only have 11 signed up so we have some work to do before launch. All of the promo is just starting to kick in via social media and press releases for example, however can you give us any recommendations as to how we should market the league locally to maximise recruitment?

Have you thought about the following role; Player Markerter at all?



Hi just signed up cannot wait to get started. I am quite a nervous person so I am hoping this will help me lose weight and bring me out of my shell a little bit.

Is there a what app group or Facebook page setup for the doncaster area yet.


Word of mouth and social media probably the best way to get it out round this area, will be good to get going and have a laugh with people all in the same boat!! Look forward to it :+1:



Just signed up for the Lincoln League as based in Market Rasen, HOWEVER, this is only a planned league and if it isn’t going to go ahead, I would rather find somewhere else. Would take about an hour to get to the Doncaster League venue, but keen to get started on this. Couple of questions:

  1. Can I transfer to another choice of league?
  2. Will all matches be on a Monday evening?
  3. Is it too late to register for this league?

Many thanks,



Whats the plan/happens on registration night? Do we get allocated teams and kick games off that night? Does anyone know?




As per


Cheers bud, much appreciated! :ok_hand::+1:


Hi, I signed up for the football last night. To be honest I didn’t know anything about it and was scrolling through Facebook when something came up about it.
I currently run two football teams in a mid-week 11 a-side league. They are both open aged teams and most of the players are a lot younger than me, a lot slimmer than me and a lot fitter than me. I occasionally get to play in goal if we are short on players but am hoping that this program will help me lose weight, get fitter and hopefully then I may be able to justify putting myself in the starting line-up.
Do you know how many players have signed up?
Hope to see everyone on the 3rd for registration night.


Just saw the league on Facebook & joined up, its been years since I’ve had a proper kick about, I can’t wait to get started. Does anyone know what the facilities are like in Rosso, is it grass or astro turf?


Its astro/3g type surface. It’s nowhere near as good as the pitches at the keepmoat or Balby Carr school, if you have used them. Played on it a few times, it isn’t the best if you are flying around doing sliding tackles and stuff, but it’s okay. I’m gonna take my astro trainers and some astro boots and see which are best.


Hi Guys,

Have we got a whatsapp group yet?



Hi everyone
Gonna be signing up on Friday!
Look forward to meeting you all and having a good laugh playing some football!!


Just got signed up so will be seeing you all next week. Do we have any confirmed numbers yet?
