Despite all the rivalries between the Scottish Teams we’ve banded together and put through a lot of PR to help out finding referees/team judges for American Football Teams in Scotland. We currently have 1.5 crews (A crew is a minimum of 5 refs right now I *think* – might be 4). So that’s saying a lot! AND our refs are covering North of England games, too – in return we have a couple of English Refs coming up to our games, so no hard feelings there.
Anyway… we’ve done a lot, been in papers, online papers, on the radio and even on STV!! :)
The photo used in the printed media is mine… :) And I am proud of it! It’s at BritBowl (the national finals) at Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster) of the Division 1 final between the East Kilbride Pirates and the London Cobras.
