So after a very enjoyable season I’ve applied to do both the 7-6 promotion pathway and the 4W to 3W promotion pathway next season.
Has anybody done both in the same season, and if so, do you have any advice?
It’d be great to have advice from anyone that has done any of the above!
Nice to see another Somerset user! Did you go to the promotion seminar tonight with Matt?
I’m a keen road runner but haven’t tried the 2000m yet. I’m going to give it a go tomorrow night and see how I get on!
I’m more worried about the sprints as I’m not very quick 😂
What part of Somerset are...
Just jumping in on this one - I’m going for 7-6 next season with Somerset and their fitness test requirement is 2000m continuous run in 12 mins and 2 x 50m sprints in 7.5 seconds.
I’m not the quickest over a short distance so I’m a bit worried about the 2 x 50m sprints. Does anybody have any...
I’ve got some touchline flags that I’ve had for ages now. Somehow one of the AR’s managed to lose on of the ends that keeps the flags on and attached.
Does anybody know if there is a way to buy these ‘ends’ to save me having to buy new flags?
Yeah keeper was straight over pleading with me. I told him that I was raising it with the ref and then the ref did what he did…
Keeper didn’t forgive me and didn’t shake my hand; just said I cost his team 3 points
Thanks mate! I know I shouldn’t dwell on it but I’ve been made to look like an idiot based on a referee failing to listen and keep his eye on play.
I went through the incident again in the dressing room and told him exactly what had happened. He then told me what he had said to the players and...
Feeling dejected and let down after today. Need to get it off my chest so I can focus on tomorrow’s game.
Was on the line today in a game that finished 1-0. The goal was scored from a header following a corner. The ball went in and I flagged to bring the referee over. As the header was made...
Thanks guys, that’s really helpful! I always knew that I’d want to build my way back up to open age mens by doing some lines on the supply league and work as a 3.
I’m sure I will enjoy it once I get back out there and my age should now help me a tad more than it did before!
I returned to refereeing this season as a Level 7 after quitting back in 2015 when I was 18. I quit due to an incident of abuse/threats on a Sunday league game in Southampton whilst I was at Uni.
I returned this season and have mainly being doing step 6 lines and u18 lines. I’ve...
Been given an additional county cup semi final but this is for a neighbouring county. I’m under Somerset FA but do the majority of my games in Wiltshire so have picked up a semi final for them.
unfortunately first 2 games of Jan have been postponed :(
@Joshref You are correct mate! BS v A for further clarity.
Thanks for asking! I’m glad he thought it was the right call. It was close but one where home team agreed and away team disagreed. I was then accused of getting intimidated by the home bench as that was the bench in my half.
Absolutely. I did bring it to the attention of the referee at half time.
It was only my second game at step 6 so I am slowly learning what I should be expected to deal with and what crosses any line etc.
