EFL referee James Adcock publicly comes out as gay and shares his story

The Daily Mirror says James Adcock has spoken about his experiences of being one of the few openly gay men involved in high-level football.

The experienced referee was speaking to coincide with National Coming Out Day.

The 37-year-old is the highest-level male official to speak publicly about his sexuality in English football, following Ryan Atkin who came out four years ago.

Adcock, who has taken charge of more than 500 matches in the Premier League and EFL, told the BBC : “As I was going from part-time to full-time in football, some knew and some didn’t.”
