In this episode: Darren & Rich pay tribute to the late Keith Buller, Somerset FA R.D.O who sadly passed away recently and take a look at the demands of the modern day referee.
Following on from the success of our last episode which you can listen to again by clicking HERE, we were contacted by Halifax R.A. who wanted to tell us what they were doing!
We had a great chat with their secretary, Arran Williams and couldn’t believe how young the team were who hold it together! It was really refreshing to hear and is definitely worth a listen because one the ‘uphill battles’ that local R.A. is up against is the perception by many that it is a bit stuffy.

You would have thought that following the Richard Keys and Andy Gray V Sian Massey incident on Sky TV that sexism towards our female colleagues would have been a thing of the past BUT you certainly wouldn’t expect that kind of thing from a refereeing colleague.
