We would like to say a massive thank you to Phil Sharpe for a fantastic donation of full referee kits for our friends from FOMO Malawi. The referees often get overlooked and it is hard to provide them with proper kit.
Phil has gone above and beyond by providing referee shirts, shorts and socks as well as the latest Rule books, whistles, cards and sets of linesman flags. Richard Shumba one of the referees based in Mulanje said he is overjoyed and cannot wait to run out in proper kit. Photos will follow once the kit has found its way to Malawi in a few months time.
Some of you will know Phil through his work at Hertfordshire FA, but not everyone will be aware that he received the highest accolade possible in his career as a linesman, by being chosen to run the line in the 2002 World Cup Final in Japan. Thanks Phil, we all appreciate your kind support.
