Royal Navy Football Association
Bluebird Care Franchises successful sponsorship of the Royal Navy Football Association’s referees has continued into a second season. Simon Dalziel, Bluebird Care Franchise Director said, “We are delighted to confirm our sponsorship for the new season. With our office being close to the home of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth, we are pleased to show our support for the Navy. Sport has an important role to play for our Armed Forces.”
Bluebird Care’s sponsorship has provided training kit for the Navy’s referees and also provides new kit for newly qualified referees.
Steve Vasey, the Secretary of the RNFA, said the Navy was grateful for Bluebird Care’s continued support
Having support like this means we can train more referees, which means more games within the Service have qualified officials. That can only improve the standard of games” he said.

In the spotlight
Each month, we profile one of the Royal Navy Referees. This month we are featuring Michael Clements, pictured below.
Royal Navy Football Association referee, Engineering Technician (Weapon Engineer) Michael Clements, 20, serves in Royal Navy warship HMS Westminster and currently works in the Air Weapons and Aviation Facilities Section but has spent time in a number of other equipment areas. Michael will move between sections as his career progresses and will be responsible for radar, sonar, missiles, computers and communications equipment as well as torpedoes, depth charges and aviation facilities. In addition to his technical role he has ‘whole ship’ duties such as firefighting and damage control.
Originally from Goole in East Yorkshire, where his parents still live, ET(WE) Clements became a football referee in February 2011. He will deploy with HMS Westminster in January 2012 for over six months as the Ship heads through the Suez Canal and into the Indian Ocean and Middle East. The Ship’s mission is to conduct maritime security operations (including anti-piracy operations) to defend Britain’s interests in the region and to reassure our allies.
I enjoy life in the Royal Navy. It is challenging and hard work, but everyday is different and I know that I’m doing something genuinely worthwhile. Being a football referee also has its challenges but I love the game and am trying to play my part to make the game better for everyone involved.
