Referees of Cornwall were treated to an online training event with FIFA and Premier League Referee Anthony Taylor on Monday evening (1 June 2020).
Anthony talked about what was important to us as referees and how we could look to improve things that we can control, covering the following topics:
He also took time to answer some questions about how he is training during lockdown, how he is preparing for the restart of the Premier League and what was the highlight of his career to date. Anthony was also very keen to stress, like our referees, that he still has many targets that he wants to achieve in his refereeing career.
We have had lots of positive feedback from referees, including:
‘Fab session last night! Can you send me links to other sessions!’
‘Good session tonight, I liked the fact that he put a different spin on things around how you can look at your game’
‘Thanks for hosting the seminar, I found it very interesting and was chatting with another ref for about an hour after about some of the points Anthony mentioned’
‘Another great evening, I’ve learnt a few things I will be working on’
Cornwall FA would like to thank Anthony for giving up his time and supporting the development of our referees.
