" Nuneaton Town captain, Gareth Dean who makes his 200th appearance for the Club on Saturday and manager Kevin Wilkin welcome Stuart Attwell to the Club".
Football League referee Stuart Attwell is helping his home town Club ensure they stay out of trouble this season. The Nuneaton official was at the Boro last night talking to the squad about the Football Conference's 3D Respect campaign 2012-13.
Boro Director Richard Dean who will oversee the programme said" We know how important it is to respect the match officials. We've not had a yellow card this season and we are keen to maintain that record as long as possible. Stuart is a top class referee so we are grateful to have someone of his standing working with the players".
Attwell took questions from the players during the session and explained the directives from the FA to help the players understand the role of the match officials. The 3D initiative is one that all Conference Clubs are expected to subscribe to but Boro were keen to go the extra mile with yesterday's talk. The Club will display posters in the home and away dressing rooms as well as in the match officials' changing room ,board room and bar areas. Referee Attwell said " It's great to see that Nuneaton are committed to working with match officials to build upon the success of the Respect programme. This type of communication is extremely positive and creates a culture of mutual understanding between players and referees,which is of real importance in the modern game".
