Youngest ever whistle blower

Congratulations to Harry Goodhew, aged 11, who qualified for an entry in the Guinness World Records last weekend by becoming the youngest ever qualified rugby referee to take charge of a match.

The Dulwich College pupil and member of the Old Alleynian rugby club, took the Entry Level Referee Award Level One and Two course in September, with a group of adults.

His first significant outing as a qualified referee on Sunday was at Dulwich College, where he took charge of a Kent v Herts girls’ under-12 match. By all accounts, Goodhew was exemplary in keeping order.
