Refereeing is arguably the most stressful job in football – but that hasn’t put off a March-based group of fledgling officials who have been training at the Neale Wade Academy.
Organised by the Cambridgeshire FA, the course was headed by the academy’s head of PE, James Crawley.
He said: “I’m delighted that my pupils have had the opportunity to learn new skills.”
Mr Crawley was also pleased to see that half the course was comprised of female students who are looking to take up the whistle in local football and follow in the footsteps of former student, Dulcie Asher.
She was recently involved in an international schoolgirl match and officiated in her first adult match.
