Always pays to keeper the referees on your side!. This is what our U14 teams were doing at Sussex FA HQ last night. They were invited to help out last night, giving the referees of tomorrow some useful scenario training, on some of the more difficult aspects of the game.
All the boys had a chance to put their acting skills on display, playing out different match situations, with over 60 up and coming referees put through their paces dealing with difficult on and off field situations.
Coaches Andy Beebee and Dave Downes were let loose and allowed to become “aggressive managers” for the night. Not sure their acting skills are quite up to scratch and hopefully they wont be repeating this type of behaviour on Sunday.
Thanks to the Sussex County Football Association for the invitation, we all had a great evening..
