Former Premier League Referee and current Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Trainer, Neil Swarbrick will be guest speaker at the Bishop Auckland Referees’ Association next month.
Neil, from Preston, was a Premier League referee from 2011 until his retirement at the end of the 2017/18. Since then, he has worked closely on the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system as well as providing expert analysis in the media.
Neil will visit the Bishop Auckland Referees’ Association meeting on Thursday 21st February 2019 which will take place at The Manor public house, Cornwall Place, Bishop Auckland, DL14 6UR starting at 7.00pm. All are welcome. Anyone interested in attending is asked to confirm via email with Secretary, Simon Clayton on to book their place as space at the venue is limited.
Terry Farley MBE, President of Bishop Auckland Referees’ Association, said: “VAR is such a topical issue at the moment and I’m sure that Neil will be able to provide us with a fascinating insight into how it is being implemented at the highest level of the game here in England.”
