Video: Howard Webb conducts a chorus of You’ll Never Walk Alone

The life of a Premier League referee is a strange one. On top of all the abuse and controversy, it seems you have strange sideline obligations to fulfil too, like playing the part of conductor at corporate events.

Mirror Football reckon this footage comes from a referees’ convention staged in 2009. It shows Howard Webb joining a (pretty poor) band on stage to help with their rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone. Webb conducts the rest of the crowd and enjoys a bit of a sing-song himself.

Perhaps it is just a very clever piece of viral marketing by the Professional Game Match Officials to refute the repeated suggestions that Webb is a Manchester United fan.
