A delighted Ogley said afterwards: “It’s been a massive day for us. We are really progressing with events like this as a league and moving on to even bigger and better things. I am very excited as we keep helping our clubs to raise standards as Sunday gave everyone a great insight on so many different levels and I think everyone benefitted and really enjoyed the get together.”
Timed to coincide with the EVO-STIK League’s milestone anniversary campaign and organised by the West Riding FA's senior football development officer Dorey after he teamed up with Ogley and EVO-STIK League secretary Angie Firth, Sunday's packed programme to keep raising standards of excellence featured a series of coaching and refereeing sessions and workshops as well as a breakfast welcome and lunch for delegates.
