Do you have any advice for young/new referees? : Make every effort to attend local training as this is where you will pick up the best advice from experienced colleagues who have been exactly where you are in their careers.
Have you had any funny/strange things happen at/during a game? : At a recent Ayrshire derby there was an incident with a can of beer being thrown onto the field (apparently directed at me).
