We were proud to recieve Mark Kinsella, as one of our guest speakers. It was great evening in which Mark spoke about how Alex Ferguson came to Ireland and had lunch with him and his parents when trying to sign him, but turned him down.When he got picked up by United a couple of years later the only trouble it was Colchester and not Manchester, and then finally moving to Charlton Athletic.
Mark talked about going to Japan for the World Cup and on to how he has now got into coaching back at Colchester. This was a talk not to be missed.
Chelmsford Refereesí Society was formed in 1947 and now has one of the largest memberships within Essex, currently at around 100 members. We are constantly looking at ways of recruiting new members as well as retaining our existing ones.
Over the past few years we have welcomed a variety of Guest speakers ranging from top Premier League Referees, Assessors, local Football League Managers to speakers giving us guidance on diet and nutrition. We also hold a number of in-house training sessions to re-visit some of those contentious issues which keep us awake at night!.
