#RefsInSchools

Children in Key Stage 2 were given the chance to meet Darren England and they completed a challenge for him. They had to invent a piece of equipment that would make an assistant referee’s job much easier. 

Ideas in Year 6 included: scented, coloured sprays to replace cards; waterproofing spray to keep clothes dry; a drinks ‘bottle’ to prevent dehydration; and a timepiece which also measured distance to help the referee measure ten yards on a free kick.
