Burnbridge Wanderers invest in more local referees
Burnbridge Wanderers FC are investing in local grassroots football
by helping to fund more referees.
Adams, Burnbridge Wanderers Vice Chairman, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"With the growing lack of referees in local grassroots football,
our Burnbridge Wanderers committee decided to support any of our
players wanting to do the refereeing qualification."
are supporting young referees that play for our club by paying for
their referee courses out of our club reserves in order to encourage
them to give back to local grass roots."
added: "We actively encourage our Under 14s and older to take
on refereeing themselves and pay for the course up front which we
then cover when the individual is fully qualified and has completed
his or her required allocation of five games."
