Referees wanted in Knutsford

By on August 8, 2018

Willing whistle blowers are wanted in Knutsford as a community football league looks to recruit men – and women – in black.

Leisure Leagues – Europe’s biggest and most successful providers of 5 and 6-a-side football – are running courses for budding referees.

The league donates all its profits to charities and good causes and has received praise from Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Prince Charles and Boris Johnson for its community efforts.

The firm has been lauded for its treatment of referees, and they can be assured they will be backed by the strongest discipline structure in the country.The induction evenings will take place at Edgerton Youth Club on Sunday over the next few weeks and anyone interested in the free lessons can ring 0333 123 2340, email  or visit
