 “I am delighted that 6 of our match officials have been chosen to be a part of this year’s FA Core Programme. It’s a fantastic way for them to learn and develop and also bring back good practices to the County FA, we will look to replicate the high standards that they get taught at our referee development events across the season. Well done to all!”
