    COVID-19 and Scottish Football

    Need to put a stake in the ground. Player should be banned and fined. 6 games would be in line with spitting and aggravated abuse as a starting point. If within 14 days any of the other players he’s been in contact with from opposing clubs become infected than that should be a further...

    Referee assaults

    Apparently the referee was told that the offender was a newly qualified teacher, which was why he was initially reticent to press charges as it would “destroy the guys career”

    Passback restart

    I’d be happy to allow it to happen so long as all of the stars align, namely: 1) Keeper picks up a back pass 2) Keeper then drops the ball and doesn’t hold on to it 3) Attacker is close enough to get the ball quickly 4) Attacker places the ball in the exact spot of the offence and the ball is...

    Passback restart

    Unlike the normal situation where a player ambles up, places the ball, has a look round at what’s going on and then says “Ref, can I take a quick one?”

    Barca v Napoli Koulibaly foul

    Nailed on penalty for all of the reasons described in the replies so far. Situation arisen due to Koulibaly’s dawdling on the ball and the quick brain and feet of Messi.

    Red card for a hiding sub

    Exactly and it also avoids a whole lot of different and confusing scenarios for example: Offence occurs when manager/physio is on FOP dealing with an injured player Offence occurs when manager is in the technical area just about to enter the FOP to deal with an injured player Offence occurs...

    Red card for a hiding sub

    I disagree here. Personally the approach that @socal lurker had stated had never crossed my mind. I'd considered it in the context of "if this incident had happened and the manager/physio was the only non playing member listed, who would get the card?" Also, let's be sensible. In order for...

    Statement is here. It's only a provisional date as well. Likely another meeting in a month where it could get bumped again. https://www.nwcfl.com/news-articles.php?id=8275

    Post Lockdown games

    I have my first game as an L4 tomorrow. 2 step 6 teams, being played at a local community academy, so not sure how they can or will enforce no spectators. There are no changing facilities and both teams are planning to turn up changed around 45 minutes before kick off. Like you James, I'm not...

    Red card for a hiding sub

    Respectfully, I (along with IFAB) disagree with both you and @socal lurker. See attached.

    If you disinfect balls and your hands after they have come into contact with each other you should be fine.

    Undershirt rules at Sunday League level?

    The LOTG asks referees to "apply the laws within the 'spirit' of the game" for me this would count as one of those. If I was on a promotion scheme and being observed, I'd mention it to the observer, so they know I'd seen it, but clarify the spirit of the game element. The only time I'd have an...

    Fitness Tests Step 6 and Above

    Yes the new criteria does have more emphasis. I think that for us "new" Level 4's it was more about the clarification on whether the county FA fitness test last year to get us in the 5-4 scheme would count or whether we'd be sitting until they could put a fitness test on for us to pass...

    Red card for a hiding sub

    Not sure about that. But the threat of it was enough in this case!

    Fitness Tests Step 6 and Above

    So does this mean that if you passed a county fitness test for promotion last year at 5-4 then you can referee?

    Red card for a hiding sub

    I had a highly amusing one in pre season last year. Player on pitch got injured and the manager was the nominated first aider. I called him on to the FOP to administer treatment. Whilst he was doing that I received dissent from his technical area. When I went over no one would admit to it, so...

    Fitness Tests Step 6 and Above

    There are some whispers going around that there will be no fitness tests this year for referees and the guidance seems to be: If you passed a fitness test last year, then you won’t need to do one this year, however fitness will be considered as part of the assessment criteria. If you didn’t...

    Two Yellows

    Link to a video in a game I remember from a couple of years back. It’s a step 4 game. Yellow Captain commits an offence, then gives the referee dissent. Referee clearly signals that the first yellow is for the incident and the second yellow is for the dissent and double yellows him. It’s...

    Masks

    The main problem is we don't know so many things about this virus at the moment. The "Known Unknowns" if you like. Things like "How much immunity will having Covid antibodies give you?" "How long will that immunity last?" "What are the long term implications of someone who has had Covid on...

    Extra sub extra time & player injured

    Player has not been substituted, nor Dismissed, therefore can return to the FOP.
