Sub Referee!

I had the great pleasure of filming and editing a story with a teenage football fan whose dream came true when he got the chance to referee at an FA Cup game. Sheffield United season ticket holder Tyler Machin ended up going from spectator to fourth official after an assistant referee fell ill in the Blades game against AFC Fylde. The 19 year old had already refereed a Sunday league game in the morning and still had his kit on from the match!

I chose not to use any voice-over in the report as Tyler was such a good talker and I only had 30 seconds of shots of him available to illustrate the story which I used to cover the edits between chunks of his interview.
