Has there been much interest how many registered so far


Hi my name is James I’m 35 from Langley and I’ve just signed up to my first man v fat football slough league. I’m looking forward to trying to play football again lol and hopefully loose some weight and get fit and have a laugh doing it.


Morning everyone, I’m Simon 39 from Langley, really looking forward to lacing the boots up after a long period retired from the game. Was a bit of a wizard winger back in the days of Sunday league but more chicken wings than winger these days. Have also been known to handle myself between the sticks. Really important for me to get fit, play the game I love and meet new people


Hi all
Elliott 43 from Langley.
Looking to lose a bit and get back playing football.


Hi malcolm here. 56 so looks like I am the old man of the group. Looking forward to losing weight getting fit and back in control of my life.


Neil, 37 from Maidenhead. Been overweight for more years than I care to remember! Tried all the usual diets but always become disillusioned after the initial rapid weight loss. Hoping my love of Footy will be the driving force this time!

Be kind, I’m a season ticket holder at Crystal Palace, not sure if there’s too many fellow Eagles around here!


What’s good gents I’m Andrew 30 from Slough fancy myself as a bit of a shot stopper used to play in the mvf Luton league last year but moved to Slough. I can vouch that it does work it’s a good laugh and a great chance to meet some new faces look forward to meet you all Monday !!


Hi I’m Andrew - 48 and another from Langley. Not played for a while. Lost 12 kg last year between Jan - May (got married in May) and then put it all back on again and a little bit more. Looking forwarding to getting fit, having a few laughs and playing a bit of footie. See u all Monday.


Hi fellas
I’m Mark a Slough boy although was living in Luton for a few years due to domestic situations changing but have recently moved back to Burnham.
48 and a midfield dinosaur…was still playing in the East Berks League until October when I decided to rearrange my left knee and have been out since, one injury to many I think now.(Totally blame one of my best mates for playing me in centre midfield when I’m a defender lol)
I’ve put on a stone in about three months and just want to try and lose it again, miss the changing room banter so hoping to create some new stuff and have a laugh along the way.
See you all tonight.


Hi All
My is Steve 51 live Gerrards Cross

Catch up with you all tonight.


I’m Wayne Morris 33 from Langley, I’ve just signed up and I’m looking forward to start playing again as I haven’t played for a few years and really missed it, and I would love to lose a bit of weight as well.
