Much appreciated.

Hello @atb88!

REGISTRATION SESSION:
Venue: 100 Oliver Rd, Leyton Orient, E10 5JY
18/09/2018 19:30

As it’s the Registration week at Leyton, you just need to appear at that location and a little bit before this time in your normal work or casual clothes. There is no football on that session, it’s just an introduction to the league, and your team mates.


#3

Perfect, cheers!


#4

We usually have a kick about after registration mate as the pitch is booked. So if you fancy joining us bring your kit with you :+1:t4:


#5

Sounds good.

Kit wise, what do you recommend?


#6

I would have thought some boots good enough to play on astro turf/3G surface, shirt, shorts, socks and shinpads.


#7

Thanks for the help.

Do you know if these boots will suffice?


#8

Personally I would have said that sort of sole is an indoor only boot. Think school gym kind of floor.


#9

Hi @atb88 - using your link, I can see you need a Size 13 boot, they do the same style boot in “Firm Ground” which is what most players wear when playing on 3 or 4G pitches:-

I would also recommend going to a sports shop and trying on a Size 13 boot, as not all boots wear the same, it’s always best to check before putting the money down.


#10

Brilliant, cheers mate.


#11

Hi is this league still active? looking to join up as a GK! cheers


#12

Yep, week 5 starts tonight. I’m in Spain so won’t be there. My team, E10 Less are after a GK!

Register here: https://www.manvfatfootball.org/leytonorient

I’ve got a code you can use to get a discount for registering: BOLAND5849 - think I get a fiver as well!

We play at Ive Farm Sports Centre (E10 5TQ), would recommend getting there for 7pm, first game is 7:30pm, parking isn’t great currently if you drive, tube is about 10 minutes away by foot.

Register now and change your life for the better!


#13

Excellent referral work there @atb88!


#14

Just noticed you’re a bluenose as well. Is right, lad! :blue_heart:


#15

Did you end up getting those boots in the end? I’ve bought some adidas Copas in black with red on the back, they are a lovely comfy boot to wear.


#16

Got these ones, mate. Really comfy!


#17

You can’t lose with some 3 stripes!


#18

Thanks @atb88 I was meant to come yesterday to check it all out but got ask to do a last minute shift in spoons!

do I have to wait for the registration week to come around in order for me to play or if I just sign up today I can start playing next week?

that venue is about 40 mins to an hour depending what public transport I take as I don’t drive but I don’t mind making the journey once a week

good to find another toffee since I moved here! COYB are you a scouser yourself @atb88?


#19

btw do you guys play indoor or outdoor? astroturf I assume?


#20

You can register any time. If every team is full, you get put on to a waiting list and don’t pay until you play.

I walk to and from the station or get a lift sometimes, where abouts do you stay?

I’m Irish, got taken to a game when I was a kid and fell in love. COYB!

We play on a 3G/4G surface so outdoor boots with plastic studs are best - the ones I’ve posted above are perfect. You’ll need shin pads and shorts as well. Once you get put into a team, you’ll be told what shirt colour you need to bring.
