We are delighted to announce that Red Egan has won our Match Official of the Year Award as part of England Football’s Grassroots Football Awards.
This Award looks to recognise a match official who has the determination and drive to ensure everyone plays fair.
Red is in his first full season as a Level 4 and has dedicated time both on and off the pitch to improve himself and taken time out to develop younger referees.
The Chair of the County RA-FA Youth Council, Red, alongside this role, has also set up training events for grassroots referees and regularly supports the local Brighton Referees Association as a committee member.
He has led the RA-FA Youth Council training evenings, inviting guest speakers, and targeting new / potential referees linking in with local youth teams.
This led to well attended sessions and some attendees booking on future referee courses.
