Premiership Assistant Referee Joins Children to Show Respect


Over a hundred children attended the Partnerships’, Volair and Liverpool FA’s Football Respect Day at Prescot Soccer Centre.  The primary children were educated in the importance of respect on the football pitch and back in their communities.  Premier League Assistant Referee Ian Hussin and Football League referee Peter Bankes delivered a basic introduction to the laws of the game, whilst helping the children have a go at refereeing.

The children also had an interactive workshop ‘Ref, You’re Having a Laugh’ on how important it is to show respect to all – during and after a match – and in the playground. Each participant also received a whistle and set of red and yellow cards.
