Our Referees

Alan Graham and Garry Pearce react to the November games:

Our three Referes will each need to report the game stats to ‘dugout’ Dave Wenham. He will have all the fixtures to hand and will also have three of these boards on his ‘desk’ so the Ref’s can enter the details.  Dave can then take his time to enter and update  his log book.

Last month there were one or two cock-ups and this is part of the solution to make sure it doesn’t happen again. The organisers are grateful to David  for giving up his time, despite suffering a back injury. We are learning as we go and this kit comes courtesy of DWFG buffer fund  (£6)  – (they have a sale on at ‘The Works’ Crown Point North #bargains).

Our three regular officials are:

Mr. Mark Bradshaw

Mr. Alan Graham

Mr. Garry Pearce.

Thanks to Keith Burrows of Stalybridge for deputising for Alan Graham on February 27th.

Al the above have been involved in league planning since the idea was first discussed.

Each will be assisted by a linesman drawn from the ranks of Curzon Academy Students. A good opportunity for some trans-generational involvement.

There are also at least six other  Manchester F.A. badged and accredited Referees involved in the league as players and team organisers. Two of whom sat on the founding committee which met in July 2018 and all members of the current steering committee are involved in walking football Refereeing regularly.
