The ‘Swinley Cup’

We have successfully had five cohorts of gentlemen through our Football Fans in Training initiative since it began in Swindon in January 2015, with a combined weight loss of around 200 stone and are currently working with our sixth cohort.

Each group appointed a ‘gaffer’ and have continued to participate in playing football on a weekly basis. The gaffer from Group two, John Bell, arranged and organised a fixture at Grange Leisure Centre with two teams from Barnsley on Saturday 7th October, who have also completed the FFiT programme. This was named the Swinley Cup as a mash up between the two teams participating!

The teams played a round robin with the bottom two from each league playing off in a wooden spoon and the top two battling out for overall winner. Congratulations to Group four for taking the trophy. Swindon will travel to Barnsley in March 2018 to hopefully retain the spoils.
