    Step 1 & National Group - Merger

    It'll be interesting to see if there are any rule changes for level 3's. In previous years if you were promoted to the National Group (EFL) as an AR you'd have to stop refereeing or choose to give up your position as a National Group AR.

    Level 4 Observations/Merit Tables

    Hi all, The FA were suppose to be introducing an algorithm to balance observer marks carried over from the 2022/23 season (Jan-May) for the 2023 annual merit table. Has anyone had an update on this? I’ve tried emailing to no joy. All of my 5 observations were between Jan-May for the 2023...
