They are still players, just playing a different part that’s the tag line for a new documentary covering referee’s that airs tonight.
Full Time Whistle is the first original documentary from sports coverage providers Full Time Productions and it will be broadcast online on Monday.
The interesting and original piece follows two Kerry district league referees through their playing careers and motivations in becoming referees.
Derek o Shea, who officiated the FAI Junior Cup final referee in the Aviva Stadium last year and Anthony Morrison a Kennedy Cup final linesman are the subjects of this piece which gives us an insight into just what it takes to be a top referee.
Full Time Productions, who produce the highlights packages for the the Kennedy Cup and cover Kerry football with great distinction, sit the referee’s down for some questions and follow them as they team up to officiate an SSE Airtricity League U17 game.
The first in a series of original documentaries from Full Time Productions goes live on line from 8pm tomorrow.
