Yes.So if a dad that refs the game ,gives a red or yellow card in youth football ,can the fa impose a fine , considering the ref I'd not affiliated with the FA ?
Rule 23 (b) of the SCOR-Y (standard code of rules - youth)
(B)In cases where there are no officially appointed Match Officials in attendance, the Clubs shall agree upon a referee. An individual thus agreed upon shall, for that Competition Match, have the full powers, status, and authority of a registered referee.
If he reports to the county FA any discipline action he took during they game then any administration charges will apply.
