Star Referees

Monday July 24, 2017 at 2:49pm

UKMA refs were the stars of the show at the recent Star Sixes event at the O2 Arena in London.

OK, not quite, maybe when you consider the quality of player at the event included world cup winners and household names, but right in the middle of the likes of Roberto Carlos, Steven Gerrard, Robert Pires, Michael Ballack and Calos Puyol were Stuart Winton and Richard Butler.

One of the UKMA's partner organisations were asked to supply the officials for the four day extravaganza - which saw thrilled crowds of 18,000 people watching the action - and when they asked us, we knew exactly who to pick.

Stuart Winton and Richard Butler are two of the most experienced small sided referees around. They have officiated in the European Six A side Championships finals in the past, including the final in 2013 and the incredible game between Greece and Germany, reckoned to be the best match ever played in the championships history.

Winton and Butler were joined by colleagues from around Europe as only the very best of the best would do.

Our involvement in the Star Sixes tournament is on-going and we were delighted to be able to give tickets to the finals to all our National teams.
