Training (Physical Fitness & In Service)

Paul Marsden

Society physical fitness training is held from 6.30pm - 7.30pm every Monday evening at the Athletics track at the Preston Sports Arena (PR2 1SG).


A nominal fee of £2 per person to cover the costs of the track should be paid to the nominted training co-ordinator at the track.


Our weekly fitness sessions offer a unique opportunity for referees of all ages and experience to improve their physcial fitness, and engage with fellow referees in a safe environment.


Paul Marsden (pictured left) said, 'I would particularly appeal to any members who perhaps do not currently attend Society meetings for whatever reason to give the fitness sessions a go, as I assure you that you will find it a very good way of getting involved, and it will benefit you in alspects of your refereeing."


Prior to the monthly meetings, fitness training will commence at the slightly earlier time of 6pm - 7pm.

Mike Salisbury


Our In service training Manager Michael Salisbury (Pictured left), and the society training team, will hold training classes for referees at the BAC/EE Club, South Meadow Lane, Preston (PR1 8JP) on the second Monday of each month.

These classes and training sessions which sometimes involve attending live games are an invaluable part of referee development, and apart from the knowledge gained they are a perfect opportunity to meet and hear the experiences of other referees. 


They are particularly targeted at newly qualified referees as a progression from the Basic Referee Course, so we can assist you in practical refereeing and how to correctly interpret the Laws of the Game.


Qualified Society Referee Tutors:

  • Michael Salisbury
  • David McNamara
  • Richard Holmes
  • Paul Marsden
  • Fiona Shone
