Around the Grounds, Sunday 10th January

This weeks review from around the grounds

The Dolphins have announced that Football West are going to run a referee’s course for all those who would like to be a referee for this season.

Games need more than players🙂 Football West will run a referee training program at Securitas Protect Stadium on 17th and 24th February. (Must attend both nights) Refereeing is a great way to improve your knowledge of the game and earn a bit of money at the same time.If you are thinking of doing it, do it now while you don’t need to travel to the city!

It’s also interesting to note that the money you receive from refereeing a game is TAX FREE! and you earn more money per hour than you would do tossing burgers at your local fast food joint!
