STAFFORDSHIRE REFEREES FEATURE ON BBC MIDLANDS TODAY

Two female match officials affiliated to Oporto Sports client Staffordshire FA featured on BBC Midlands Today on Sunday 3 February, as cameras followed them to a referee training event at St George’s Park.

Organised by The FA, the annual Women’s Grassroots Refereeing Development Event was attended by over 100 female referees from across the country, including five Staffordshire FA officials and one of the County FA’s senior female referees, Chloe Matthews, who helped deliver training on the day.

After taking part in a series of fitness and positioning sessions, Alice and Teigan, who both referee in the Staffordshire area, spoke to the BBC’s Amy Cole about their love for refereeing.
