While the sun may have been shining this week, it doesn’t mean you can just give up on your weight loss regime! We are back to help you on your quest to lose pounds, by revealing a tasty alternative to fatty potato mash (which will also help you keep some pounds in your pocket too), with lots more cracking stories from the world of weight-loss and beyond in this weeks’ MAN v FAT newsround.
NEWS FROM THE MAN V FAT FOOTBALL LEAGUES
Ian in a Tutu
Since joining MAN v FAT Football in July 2016, it has been plain sailing for Weston league player Ian – that is until he had his first ever weight gain last week, resulting in him having to abide by his teams’ forfeit for when a player puts weight on. Ian, who had evaded the sanction for ten months, lost a bit of his dignity when he had to dress up in a ballerina tutu. We would love to hear about all of the wacky and crazy forfeits you have encountered whilst playing MAN v FAT Football.
Football Fabric Exhibition
Are you a lover of classic football shirts and based in the London area? The Fabric of Football exhibition at Newspeak House in Shoreditch might be of interest to you. Here you will be able to see hundreds of famous classic football shirts worn by some of the games’ greats in the flesh. It is quite literally a once in a lifetime opportunity as a lot of these shirts will never be exhibited again. It is a free exhibition so make sure you get yourself down – more information is available here.
