Additional Associations:

I played soccer at a high level but unfortunately due to a knee injury I had to give up playing. I lost interest in soccer for a period when I took up golf and only when my son started playing the game competitively that I returned and took up coaching achieving UEFA Level B standard which is two levels below Pro Licence. I had an interest in refereeing and I felt that I could contribute to the game in that way so I did the course.
I have developed a strong interest in refereeing and I have worked up to Grade 1 Senior having done games at a high level up to National U19 games.
