A stellar start to 2023 for PGMOL Breaking Barriers
Refresh Sports are proud to have entered our third year of delivering Breaking Barriers on behalf of PGMOL.
Breaking Barriers is a series which sees personnel from refereeing and other areas of football share their personal stories of achieving success.
Discussing sporting and wider societal matters, the inclusive platform provides an environment to pass on advice and guidance to aspiring referees and those with an interest in knowing more about the profession.
The first session of 2023 took place on Time to Talk Day, which is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Happening every year, it’s a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives. Hosted by Alexis Nunes, the panel included EFL official Gareth Vicars, PGMOL Psychologist Kayleigh Dougan and Mind’s Head of Physical Activity, Hayley Jarvis.
The following session saw an insightful discussion on the holy month of Ramadan, led by Refresh Sports’ very own Fadumo Olow.
