Had a 2008 age group game today.
Black vs Red
Sent off red coach for OFFINABUS 4 minutes before half time. Clearly didn't agree with a decision I did not give his team.
Refused to give me his full name. Some other person was there who advised he couldn't leave the pitch due to COVID and there...
Done my first 2 11 a side games today. Just wanting to post with some self reflection and potential advice.
First game was 2008 age group, second was 2007.
All in all no major troubles with this game. Young boys so lots of mouth. Ref this and ref that and giving it to each other.
This may be easier for any fellow SFA refs, but how do you find friendlies to ref?
see alot of chat about if teams know you etc but obviously don’t have that luxury as I’m not yet a member of leagues or anything.
There isn’t any direct contacts that I’m aware of within the referee hierarchy...
Apologies, if this has been discussed prior.

would you be producing two yellows/red or a straight red.
You may be able to argue that is still a gesture.
I appreciate both result in the same action. Asking...
Since the new seasons will hopefully be starting soon. Thought it would be a good time to get a threads deal going so we can keep all the latest kit prices and accessories in one handy place.
I'll try keep this thread upto date with latest prices and that, however some may change before I get...
My RA have just released their calender of events for 20/21. Now out of those 12 months I only get to attend 2 regional training days.
now this has me thinking, are all RAs the same?
I hear alot of talk about needing more referees or new referees not sticking around.
It seems to me like more...
I am aware there is a lot of threads of people asking for which equipment people use etc.
However seen as there's still a lockdown I am looking for photos of your equipment and what you use.
I am quite a visual person and am new to refereeing so it would be good to get a look at what others...
