Refs whistle up Elleray

Have your say

FORMER top referee David Elleray is to be guest speaker at the annual gathering of South Yorkshire referees from all levels.

Elleray, still a major figure in the refereeing world, will speak at the County Referees Association rally hosted this year by Rotherham and District Referees’ Association on Thursday, March 22, at the town’s Holiday Inn.

The seven referees’ associations within the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA area take it in turns to host the event.

Elleray, a former Premier League and FIFA referee, is now President of the Referees Association and chairman of the FA Referees committee.

As hosts, Rotherham RA will hope to have their most famous member, Howard Webb, among the guests and a framed shirt signed by Howard and his 2010 World Cup Final assistants, Darren Cann and Mike Mullarkey, will be a major competition prize on the night.
