Ref of the Year
We are delighted to report that Darren Crompton from our Accounts Department has won the prestigious Referee of the Year accolade from the Lancashire Amateur League. This is a fantastic achievement as he was selected to be the winner from a total of 120 referees in the region.
Darren has been a qualified referee for several years and he has recently been promoted to Level 4 status which is semi-professional. This allows him to be selected by the FA to officiate Supply League matches. He no longer referees park football and all the games he officiates are in grounds whereby supporters have to pay to watch the games. Level 4 status means that Darren is three promotions away from the Premier League and just one promotion away from being involved in the Football League.
With Darren winning Referee of the Year, achieving Level 4 status and also recently being selected to referee the Amateur League Cup Final, 2015 is proving to be something of an epic year so far!
