STEELMEN supporters recently took part in a football tournament which celebrated them reaching the end of an exercise and healthy eating programme.

The SPL Trust’s first annual Football Fans in Training (FFIT) five-a-side tournament was held at St Mirren Park.

The event was the culmination of the first year of the FFIT project which gave the Motherwell fans the chance to take part in a 12-week programme combining physical exercise with healthy living messages.

The project was aimed at men aged 35 to 65 who have a waist size of 38 inches and over and 412 men from across the country lost a staggering 2.3 tonnes and a total of 24 metres from around their waist.
