School children in Peterborough were congratulated by the Mayor of Whittlesey after they completed a series of sessions about football refereeing.
Councillor Ralph Butcher visited Coates Primary School to present them with certificates.
The certificates were awarded after the children attended a series of six special sessions provided by Peterborough Referees Association which was supported by the Burnt House Wind Farm Fund.
The children had to demonstrate their knowledge of fair play respect, sportsmanship and the role of the match official.
They took on a different role in each session.

Session FA tutor, Robert Windle, said: “The children enjoyed the practical sessions with each of them having a go at being a referee and also learning flagging skills. I was delighted that the sessions have been such a success.”
The Peterborough Referees Association is an open and friendly group for all referees in Peterborough and surrounding areas which was launched in 2006.
