Ferriby has joined forces with Man v Fat which is an organisation aiming to improve men’s heath through playing football.
Man v Fat Director Andrew Shanahan says,
“We have a league in Hull which plays at the Steve Prescott centre in Hull. We've got nearly 60 guys who play on a weekly basis who between them have lost over a ton of weight since the league began. With our other leagues around the country we partner with local football clubs as a way of raising awareness about the leagues, but also so that we can share the excellent PR and results we get with a local partner.
“One of our players suggested that North Ferriby United would be a great partner because of the links that you have with the local community and because in his words "they're a good bunch!”
Ferriby Owner/Chairman Jamie Waltham says,
“We are delighted to support this initiative. As a football club we obviously know the importance that playing sport makes to a person’s health. It seems appropriate to support Andrew and Man v Fat in this area.”
