  • “I would like to say that the team really enjoyed the Autumn season. We would particularly like to mention the main referee (the one who was in charge of handing out the prizes last night) who we thought was exceptional. This has been a brilliant tournament to start us of and we look forward to participating in many more!”

  • “On behalf of Dads Army, we just wanted to say it was a great piece of refereeing last night, you handled a potentially difficult game brilliantly and the consensus in the pub afterwards was that without a strong ref, the game could have ended up slightly farcical. Everybody left the pitch with a good word and a handshake, as it should be.”
