The end of the football season doesn’t send referees into hibernation for a few months. Our summer events programme started in late May with the County RA Quiz. Two teams represented Altrincham and had an enjoyable evening, bearing in mind that it’s the taking part that counts (Stockport won, again). As the weather heated up, so did our rivalry with our close neighbours. The Altrincham Refs v Stockport Refs cricket match was a success once again, and this time the result does matter (we won!). As thoughts turned towards the new season, a few of our members attended the RA Referee Development Weekend near Leicester, enjoying training sessions from multiple Premier League officials and the opportunity to network with referees from across the country. At the end of July we’ll have a number of members officiating in tournaments and pre-season friendlies, getting themselves ready for a flying start to the 2017/18 season!
