Well done to Rebel Og Coaching who tonight organised a very successful training evening for new referees in Rebel Og North.
On the night 40 new referees attended the programme.
Over the last number of weeks, GDAs Pat Sprat and Colm Crowley have been working on developing a young referee’s programme that allows new referee’s to take control of U11 league games.

The referee is then able to gain some vital experience that will stand to them as they progress up the ranks.
