First game of football in my sixties and tips on losing weight and staying healthy

I was playing regular (weekly) football until my late fifties, then Covid struck and once we hit that extended period, it was a case of as and when.

It’s always been my intention to get back on track though, and in December I met Simon at our local Christmas In The Village event.

I’ve known him for years but it’s been a long time since I last saw him.

‘Do you still play football?’ I asked to which he replied in the affirmative.

That was my break and, after getting a message from Simon, yesterday I was back on the pitch.
