Folu joins the Referee Development Team
We are delighted to have appointed Folu to the Referee Development Team (RDT) as the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Lead.
Within his new role, Folu will play a key role in ensuring Manchester FA continues to diversify the Grassroots Workforce, within Refereeing, with people from underrepresented groups from across Greater Manchester. Folu will also mentor these individuals when they begin refereeing, ensuring they have a point of contact and support whenever it is required.
We caught up with Folu to discuss all things refereeing, with the full interview available below!
Conor Brown, our Referee Development Officer said “I am delighted to have Folu join the RDT as he will play an integral role in ensuring we continue to recruit from a diverse range of backgrounds, but also ensure these individuals have a positive role model to be inspired by. I know Folu will thrive in the role and open up a way into refereeing for people who may never have considered refereeing before”.
Welcome to the RDT Folu!
