Each year Sheffield Referee Association, Middlewood Rovers and Billy Sharp’s LJS Foundation team up to deliver an amazing festival of football. The teams played some brilliant football and the referees receive mentoring for two days. The referees turn up each season are a combination of young and new referees, they officiate completely free of charge, they are investing their own time in their own development as well as supporting a very worthwhile charity. They are amazing referees just for this let alone what they do on the field of play.
On the field of play, they learn so much and we concentrate on certain key areas, to begin with, the video covers areas we covered and if you are reading this as a new official, we hope it helps and guides you.
