Former Premier League referee asks goalkeeper if he wants to take over :smile:
FORMER Premier League referee Stuart Attwell is used to being barracked by top flight players over his decisions.
But he was less than impressed when he got it in the neck from Atherstone Town's youth team goalkeeper Tom Leeson.
Nuneaton-based Attwell was in charge of the Adders' 1-1 draw with Nuneaton Town last Thursday night when he made the unusual, if effective, move of offering the teenager the chance to take over the whistle when he had a little too much to say.
An onlooker at the game said: "It was a brilliant way to handle it. The keeper was quiet as a mouse for the rest of the game...."
