Senior Cup Final Workshops

BBC Essex Senior Cup Final Coach and Referee Workshops

Limited Spaces for Invaluable CPD Training Events

It's more than just a match! As well the hugely-anticipated BBC Essex Senior Cup Final on Tuesday 19th March at Colchester United FC’s JobServe Community Stadium, we're staging referee and coach workshops. The FA Cup silverware will also be in attendance, too, providing an incredible photo opportunity!

Places are available to book now, subject to availability, and, for the coaches workshop, attendees will gain insights from West Ham United FC Academy Manager, Kenny Brown. A match ticket and stadium parking are included in the booking cost - all attendees are invited to enjoy the match from the West Stand after the workshop has finished.

Coaches Workshop: Open to all coaches (no qualification necessary), this session qualifies as accredited FA CPD (Continuing Professional Development) hours for Level 1-4 coaches. Kenny Brown, a current UEFA Pro License holder, has had a large impact on the game within Essex not only as a coach and academy manager, but also as a player.

His experiences, to name a few, include being Academy Manager at Dagenham & Redbridge and Head of Coaching at West Ham. As a player, Kenny has also made over 350 appearances with clubs such as Norwich City, Plymouth Argyle, West Ham United, Millwall and Southend United. Essex County FA Coach Development Officer, Tom Sibthorpe, is looking forward to the event.

He said: “This is not one to be missed out on for coaches and fans alike. We’re delighted to be able to bring in such an individual who shares rich connections with Essex, and I’m sure there will be many a coach and fan - especially West Ham supporters - who can’t wait to hear his stories, coaching insights from the academy environment and ideas from and around the game he loves!”

Referees Workshop: From 6:15pm, a special guest speaker from the Premier League will share their knowledge and experiences as well as how to progress, develop and improve your refereeing skills. Find out about life as a professional referee, along with a ‘question and answer’ session.

Book one of a number of limited CPD workshop places at the Coaches Workshop or the Referees Workshop, while spaces remain available. Registration for the Coaches Workshop is open until 5:00pm on Thursday 14th March, while booking are being taken for the Referee Workshop until 4:00pm on Friday 15th March.
