Adam has successfully gained a place to read sport and exercise science at Manchester Metropolitan University. Adam also has a passion for football refereeing. He took to this after reading an article that junior football matches were been cancelled due to a shortage of referees. Adam spent time earning money and saving up to pay for a referees course. Now qualified Adam spends all weekend refereeing often doing 3 to 4 games on a Saturday and a Sunday. After games he will speak with parents and coaches and try and recruit more referees. Adam has been offered to referee at a higher level on weekends but has declined the opportunity as he sees his focus as helping grass roots football. Adam also referees school games free of charge during the week.
