    Speaking to Captains

    I’m a firm believer in this. Takes zero effort and immediately helps build rapport. What do we think players are going to respond better to: “Number 8 come here please” Or “Ben, come over here please pal” Small things to make our lives & games easier!

    Level 7 - 6

    It may vary where you are but down in the south west there’s very little difference between the leagues you do as a 7 or 6. In theory it should see you officiate in a higher standard of football but in practice it depends on the quality of those ‘higher’ leagues.

    Match fees - again

    I am very firmly of the opinion that if you’re refereeing because you want the money then you’re refereeing for the wrong reasons. Without football what would you do to keep fit and get fresh air? Go to the gym? Costs you £20-£50p/month Go road running? Earns you nothing Go to watch football...

    Match fees - again

    You’re not going to get rich refereeing grassroots football. Provided my petrol is covered and I can placate my wife with a takeaway when I get home then I’m happy 👍🏻 Whether it’s £20 or £70 doesn’t really bother me, I’m a referee because I LOVE football and staying involved after playing.

    Foul Recognition involving GK

    Each to their own. I stand by that there can very easily be occasions where the keepers actions in the OP can be a ‘play on’ scenario. Not all contact is foul contact.

    Foul Recognition involving GK

    There’s a HUGE difference between punching an opponent and making contact with them as a result of a clearance. If a player jumps for the ball and accidentally lands on an opponent is that a stamp or an innocent result of an action they’re entitled to carry out?

    Foul Recognition involving GK

    I’m viewing it in the same way I would a clash of heads while challenging for the same ball. Players A & B both jump and challenge, player A wins the header. In the same motion of heading the ball, he follows through and makes contact with player B’s head. Yes there are occasions where this...

    Foul Recognition involving GK

    As above! A - unless there’s an element of reckless/excessive force I’m saying it’s incidental to the keepers clearance. Play on. B - I’d rather listen to a striker moan for 30 seconds than the whole defensive side moan for the rest of the game because it resulted in a goal. Play it safe &...

    FA Core

    I’ve booked onto “camp 3” for the pre season stuff. Didn’t go last year but have heard it was excellent and well worth going.

    Decent Bag

    I’m fundamentally lazy and can’t be bothered to organise my bag each week! With a bigger bag I can keep a few different kits, couple of towels etc so if I forget to sort anything out during the week I always have a spare kit in the same bag! Plus it actually doubles up brilliantly if I do go...

    Decent Bag

    You carry on taking the piss and carrying your kit over your shoulder 😂 I’ll save my energy for the warm up where I beast any AR that takes the piss 😂

    Decent Bag

    I bought this one last year and it’s perfect, space for everything and looks smart. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265168756463?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=tKbJunDjTuG&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=gqqldsdyt5g&var=565048499327&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

    Back pass that wasn't but now is - (to GK)

    We’re not mind readers, how do know who the pass was intended for? I think football would expect an IDFK in the example above.

    Free kick to defenders inside the box - when can you challenge?

    If the defence chose to take a quick free kick before the attacker has the chance to leave the area then the ball is ‘in play’ as soon as it it is kicked and clearly moves. Therefore the attacker can challenge for the ball as soon as the keeper takes the free kick. However, if the attacker...

    Promotions, advancement

    Welcome aboard! I’d recommend trying to mix up some grassroots open age middles with some AR duties. It’d probably be beneficial to get at least half a season of open age football under your belt before looking at promotion too. The jump from U16’s to Step 5/6 football will be huge and may...
