Football Referee Coaching

Referee training for our Senior Boys

A football referee course is being taken by our Senior boys.   The course leader, Mr Rod Marsden, is a Lancashire FA Referee Assessor and former Class 1 referee.   The boys have been learning about fair play, respect and law awareness, including the often misunderstood ‘off side’.   Sucessful candidates have to pass a practical test and they will receive a certificate from the FA as well as a referee kit which includes a pocket book and caution cards.   We are certain that the course has already enhanced the boys’ confidence and understanding of football.   The practical test is on Thursday 13th December – good luck boys!
