A Guide to Good Refereeing
Based on the well-known, long-running You Are the Ref football feature, illustrated by legendary artist Paul Trevillion, this guide is aimed at established and newly qualified football referees. This is an accessible, easy-to-digest coaching manual – the mysteries of refereeing are explained clearly, and brought to life with Paul Trevillion’s images and Keith Hackett’s incisive text.
