“Big thanks to two of our YMO’s for acting as ARs at Sixways as I refereed a charity match between West Mercia Police and Warwickshire Police. They gave great assistance and both teams were full of praise for their efforts!”

James Ranford, North Midlands Referee

“To hear those golden words, ‘we have a ref’ is like winning the lottery for us, so thanks to the ‘young whistler’ who I thought had an excellent day.”

U14’s Team Coach

“There is currently a small group of YMOs active in the North Midlands region. I am totally amazed at the amount of support they have: on Friday evenings / Saturday afternoons they turn up to assist in senior games as an Assistant Referee then on Sundays try to take what they have learned from their mentors by refereeing at junior level with a senior referee on the side giving valuable advice. The parents of the YMOs help and support each other too. Just shows the spirit of the game is fantastic. Onwards and upwards!”
