On yesterdays Ken Bruce show, he had a popmaster contestant on who was
RFL Ref, who retired after his last match in 94, Runcorn v Workington.
Were they deaf?
guy is called John Kendrew, and he claimed he was a top grade referee. I
cannot recall him, does anyone else remember him?
Yes, I remember him. Mr Kendrew was/is from Castleford, and he was
known as "the singing referee" because he used to sign at players'
benefit evenings (honestly!)

someone can back me up!
John Kendrew was indeed a top grade referee (he pass away this week) and he was known as 'the singing ref' as he sang for benefits, charities and in clubland. I was proud to have him as my friend for many years
