EFL Referee John Brooks delivered a captivating presentation for our February that was engaging and informative is equal measure. The large turnout was rewarded with a wide range of topics which had something for everyone.
The two hours in which John was on his feet flew by as members were invited to respond issues and engage in great a deal of educational and thought provoking debate. If you ever get a chance to hear John speak it is an opportunity you shouldn’t miss.
John started refereeing in 2004 aged 14, officiating in the local Leicestershire youth leagues for a couple of seasons. After reaching level 3 he was promoted to the National List of Assistant Referees in 2011. Promotion to the select Group followed in 2012 and he was invited onto the FIFA Assistant referees list in 2015 after attending the UEFA CORE programme which was hugely beneficial. John continued to act as a referee as well and for the season 2015-16 was a panel 2a Referee.
John officiated at Wembley as an assistant referee in the 2012 League 2 Play Off Final, the 2014 FA Trophy Final & Championship Play Off Final, the 2015 Community Shield and two FA Cup Semi Finals and the 2016 FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace. In Summer 2016 at the age of 25 he chose to change direction and solely referee on the English Football League.
