Thanks. Good to see the league up and running. Looking forward to it.

Looking forward to this. Just finished a great league season at Luton where I’ve lost 5kg. Northampton is much closer for me though. Is there any chance of getting a copy of the league flyer again to promote it? I think I deleted the e-mail in error.

First league - really looking forward to it. Anyone else over Rushden way?

Excited to get started. But really apprehensive. Really unfit and obviously quite the fatty! Excited to meet all you chaps and lose some weight while having a bit of fun!

Hi Ben, I have registered for the league but won’t be able to make tonight’s registration as I will be returning from holiday in Kenya. Will this cause any problems?

The e-mail I got yesterday suggests letting Ben know if you can’t attend. I’m not sure if he’s actively monitoring this thread but you could try e-mailing him directly on or phoning him on 07789630093 just to be sure.

I’m a different Ben by the way just in case of confusion :smile:

Hi mate.

No problem just be sure to arrive to next weeks session slightly earlier to have your starting measurements taken and the scheme outlined to you by the coach.

Cheers, Sven.

Hi. Still not been added to either the team yellow Watsapp or the Captains watsapp group.

Hi, similarly, I’m waiting to be added to the blue team’s WhatsApp. I think they said an admin would do that between the registration day and next week’s games. Cheers

I recognise that face…

Come on skip the what’s app group needs you !!

Hey mate, he’s waiting to become admin himself before he can add anyone in. He knows I’m not in it yet himself. Got my yellow kit this morning and looking forward to getting started tomorrow!
Got a spreadsheet for people when they know they’re not attending / on holiday, so I’ll grab dates off people tomorrow to start filling it in. Less Captain more Admin…

See you tomorrow!

A spreadsheet ? Great stuff !! see you tonight :grinning:

That was a great night last night fellas , really enjoyed it. The best team doesn’t always win :wink:

Yep was a great night and really good to meet all the teams, top player for me was the golden arches keeper, made several great saves. Hopefully a few more players will sign up and you will be able to have a few subs for the next games.
But to quote a certain Mr Bull " football is the winner"

That was me !! Sometimes the ball hits you and sometimes it goes flying in !

The mighty Arches will be at full strength on Tuesday night Subby

Hi all I just signed up.

Do I turn up on Tuesday and then be allocated a side?

Can someone inform me

Thank you

Morning all

I’ve just signed up and really looking forward to it. Not played any football in a couple of years so might be a bit rusty though …

All being well I was going to come along. Anything I need to know beforehand?


Hi, I’ve just signed up today but looks like I’ve missed the registration sessions, anyone know what I need to do now? Any help would be appreciated

You’ll have to wait for them to restart after lockdown.
