Liverpool County FA’s referees’ team is pleased to announce the promotion of county official Peter Wright, who has been elevated to the National List of Referees (Level 1) and will officiate in the Football League for the 2018/19 season.
Peter has worked extremely hard to get to the level achieved since beginning his referee journey in the Southport-based Craven Minor Football League. Peter spent time in the referee academy programme run by Liverpool County FA at both Everton and Liverpool Football Clubs, alongside a spell with Durham County FA whilst completing his studies at university in the north east.
David Horlick, Referee Development Manager at Liverpool County FA, said: “Peter is a fine example of what can be achieved within refereeing with hard work and dedication. Like many others, Peter has experienced peaks and troughs along the way, but has persevered in his referee career and has now been rewarded with his promotion to our National List of Referees.
“I hope many of our younger referees can learn from Peter’s experiences and hopefully follow him in years to come.”
