And we had a young ref U15 game . I took the flag and waited in the centre circle with him and he was muttering about the away team and how he wanted them to send over a lino. Toot your whistle and hold your flag up , says I ... Which he does and someone steps forward . Look on his face says... Ooh. That works . Anyway , he has a terrible game gives a pen which (really) wasn't and one of the dads has a pop at him for it ... 3 times. So I've told him to shut up , leave him alone , he's a kid learning his trade . second half wasn't much better and when ref came to shake hands with home manager he apologised saying I should have done this. Should have done that , and his head was down , really looked upset , so I followed him and his dad to the car park and said , look don't worry , everything you missed you'll get next week . A) annoyed at the parents reaction ( and I'm reffing his sons game tomorrow ) B) upset that this young fella has walked away with his head down C) I've got his number, do I call him and have a chat to reinforce what I was trying to say to him on the day ?
