Our Social League Referees

John McNamara

Monday Social League Referee
Friday Social League Referee

I started refereeing at the age of 16 at my local club Kirkley and Pakefield F.C. & quickly learnt to love it. My weekends became centred around refereeing, frequently officiating as many as five games over the two days. 

My favourite part of the role is helping people get into football and learn the rules of the game. Hopefully helping others to get fit and healthy through sport!

Thursday Social League Referee

Hi I’m Andrew and I’m one of the Project Active referees for Term 1. It was 2 years ago when UCL offered a free referee certification course. As a football fan since young, I’ve gotten familiar with the rules of the game, so I wanted to give it a shot and try new experiences. I have been a qualified referee ever since and officiated last year’s Project Active games. My favourite part of the job is to meet new people along the way and to have a fun activity outside of my stressful computer science course. Hope to see y’all at the Project Active sessions!
