A group of overweight lads came together in October to play seven-a-side football on Monday evenings with the aim of losing weight while playing football.
Between them they have lost 242.3 kg.
From this weightloss league Grantham Athletic FC have set up as an 11-a-side team and are competing against other man vs fat 11-a-side teams in a National League, the season for which commences in June.
Recently they held a friendly against Lincoln where they recorded their first victory against a well established team, who have been playing together for a couple of years.
This was only Athl;etic’s 5th game.
The full report on Sunday’s game can be seen here….
