For the past three years the Nottinghamshire Senior League have been developing referees in conjunction with Nottingham Forest Academy. In a new and ground-breaking initiative we have now kindly been offered an evening of fitness and conditioning by the academy on 20 December, 7-8.30pm.
This is aimed at match officials, from those who are currently just learning their trade through to those on a contributory league, who operate at a grassroots level on a Saturday and Sunday.
Spaces for this unique opportunity are limited. Mentors are also invited. Please contact Referees Secretary Darrell Parkes to register your interest.
