I am a Level 7 Referee from Kidderminster, Worcestershire. I first passed my exam in Nov 1994 and refereed local football on the Kidderminster & District Football League (Adult Football) and the Stourport Boys League (Youth Football). The year I would have been promoted to Level 6 or class 3 as it was still then I broke my arm and missed completing enough matches.
I shortly afterwards gave up the whistle and concentrated on my retail management career, but having lost my job and now having all the time in the world i have re-sat my exam and passed my course in Jan 2012.
Once my fitness levels are back to how they should be I will be once again refereeing on the Bromsgrove District Football League and running the line on The Midland Football Combination.
My aim is to be back in full swing of things ready for the 2013/14 season before applying for promotion in 2014/15 season. With the aim of moving quickly onto level 4 and the leagues that come with that level.
