Advisory Board


Alex McLeish

Alex has a remarkable reach in the game among all aspects of specialisation as a result of being one of the foremost Scottish players and managers of his generation. He was the first name on our wish list when we decided to establish this Advisory Board. 



Craig Thomson

Craig's network across football is extensive and he has been responsible for plugging us into the top echelons of refereeing expertise in the UK and beyond which is proving to be phenomenally useful in getting our message to the attention of the critical thinkers in the laws of football. 



Charlie Nicholas

Following his professional playing career Charlie became one of the most sought-after football pundits on British TV and a leading columnist in the print media. His face became one of the most well-known and well-loved on Sky Sports for many a year. He has now left the TV side of things behind to concentrate on business affairs but he still has a column in the Daily Express newspaper.



Keith Hackett

Keith describes
ColorFlash as an "exciting product" and is impressed that our clear and unambiguous aim is to assist referees. His knowledge of actually affecting genuine change in football for the good of the sport and for the benefit of referees is a potential game-changer for this project.


Alan Snoddy

Alan Snoddy joins ColorFlash from the background of a highly successful international refereeing career, followed by many years of independent consultancy in which he has worked with various national FAs and federations to improve the performance of their match officials.
