Over-25s v Under-25s referee’s match for Children in Need

Scunthorpe Referee’s Association match officials will be ditching the whistle this Sunday evening and instead be intentionally kicking the ball when they take part in a charity football match.

It’ll be the second annual Over-25s v Under-25s match, with the first coming two years ago (last year suspended due to the pandemic). Last time out, it was the Over-25s (in black) who triumphed to win the Uriah Rennie Trophy, winning on a sudden death penalty shoot-out.

The Under-25s will this time be managed by Ethan Nundy after Robbie Hall was sacked following the defeat last time out, while Dave Jones will aim to continue the Over-25s’ 100% record as he take charge of that side.

All referee participants will be paying £5 to play, with all proceeds going to Children in Need. The match will be taking place at South Axeholme Academy on the 3G pitch, on Sunday, November 21st, kick-off 6pm.

The match will be 30 minutes each way, and will be a nine-v-nine encounter.

Anyone who wishes to attend the game is more than welcome to spectate, with donations gratefully received – all gate receipts again being donated to Children in Need.
