Congratulations to Rohan Anand who has been presented with the ADRS Young Referee of the Year award for the 2014/15 season. Rohan was presented with the trophy on Wednesday evening by Kevin Friend, Premier League Referee.
Rohan started refereeing at the age of 14 motivated by the potential to earn some money, but saw the potential to progress after transferring into the Altrincham District 2 years later. Attending Development Group meetings and using the wider support network to improve, Rohan progressed to Level 6 and is currently on track to achieve promotion to Level 5. He believes you get out of refereeing what you put in, and has given time back to help mentor new referees in the District.
Rohan follows in the footsteps of some notable names – the list of previous winners, and Rohan’s presentation picture, can be viewed here.
