FA Referee Awards at Club Wembley – 5 June 2023

The National FA asked for nominations for 12 prestigious awards and David King was nominated for a “Lifetime Achievement Award” to refereeing

This award is for someone in the refereeing community who has made an outstanding contribution to the development, administration and servicing of officiating and who has made a career-long contribution to refereeing, creating a legacy of improved outcomes for individuals, communities, and the wider population

Along with many others he travelled to Wembley on the 5 June (his birthday) with his wife, Yvonne

At the dinner on the evening David was awarded a “Lifetime Achievement” Award from the FA….to his surprise; a day not to be forgotten

David was very humbled by this tremendous award for over 50 years service to refereeing including mentoring, observing, tutoring, coaching, etc and still continues today
