The FA and Professional Game Match Officials Ltd will be represented at Create Your Legacy by FIFA & Select Group referee Andre Marriner.

Marriner will be a familiar face to viewers of Match of the Day and last year’s FA Cup final but next month in Warwick his role as the man in the middle will take on a new meaning.

The Birmingham-born match official will be on hand to offer an insight into life as a referee to the event’s delegates who will be contemplating their next move if and when life as an elite performer comes to an end.

The FA’s National Referee Manager Roger Vaughan is driving an initiative to recruit, retain and develop referees involved in 11-a-side football and will use Create Your Legacy to try and keep those with experience at a professional level within football but in an officiating capacity from grassroots level upwards.
