Female Only Referee Course Delivered In Pontefract

Female only FA Referee course delivered in pontefract

This week saw us run a female only Refeee course in conjunction with New College Pontefract at Aspire at the Park.

On the course, Steve Conboy, West Riding FA Football Development Officer, said "We are delighted to have worked in partnership with New College Pontefract with the delivery of our Female Only FA Referee course.

Female students at New College have received joint funding from both the college and from ourselves at West Riding FA as part of our mission to increase the number of female referees in our county.

The females attending this course will be offered the opportunity to referee games in our new Women’s Beginner League at Aspire at the Park, Pontefract as well as helping their local grassroots clubs to cover more games with a qualified referee."

Tom Shepherd, head of PE and Sport at New College, said, “We look forward to continuing our support of increasing girls participation in football.

Following this success, we will offer this opportunity annually to all interested students, even if they do not take a sport based course.”
