Before I start this I'll say I'm not 100% sure this is the right place to post this but let's get to it. I'm scheduled to referee a u11 match this Sunday. This will be only my 6th game and my friends have asked if they could do the line. I trust them as to not do anything stupid or biased or anything but would they be allowed. I would ask the home managers opinion and if he allowed them I would tell the away manager before the game so he didn't complain. Neither of them are qualified ref's but usually parents just do it. The last match I played one of the linesmen disappeared mid match and no one was eager to do it. Also would I have to email the league to notify them? Or should I just tell my friends no?
