Men in South Holland who love football and want to lose weight can join a new league starting near the area this week.

The MAN v FAT league kicks off at the Peter Paine Performance Centre, Rosebery Avenue, Boston, on Friday, February 21, with games to be played between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.

Described as "a competitive, enjoyable and social method of losing weight through the love of football", the league is supported by Lincolnshire Football Association (FA).

Jake Park, football development officer at Lincolnshire FA, said: "Losing weight can be an extremely difficult task but when a sport as popular as football in involved, everything seems much easier and more enjoyable.

"Players are weighed before games and extra goal bonuses are awarded for players who have lost the most pounds.

"This means it becomes a real team effort which only helps to encourage commitment, both on and off the pitch."
