Kind-hearted referee praised by parents and players
Young volunteer referee Lily Smith went above and beyond this week while overseeing a match between Formby Community Football Club’s under 6 girls. Lily took time to tie laces and give tips to the youngsters during a game against Ormskirk.
One spectator said: “Both teams had smiles on their faces throughout. Lots of goals, positive cheers from the parents for both sets of players. Particular thanks the ref who patiently tied laces and gave lots of positive encouragement throughout.” FCFC was only formed in March and membership is still growing.
