Hi everyone!

I’ve never had assistant referees before and so I was wondering if you could give me a list of things that you speak about in your pre-match briefing please?

Please be as detailed as you can, even if you think it seems trivial!

Thanks so much 🙏

One of my friends gave me this. I’d never give them to ARs as part of my talk, but I’ve always just used the list at the bottom as a guide for what to speak about. As I’m a level 7, I rarely lead a team of 3, but I try to memorise that list as it pretty much covers everything

It's different almost every game. It can be as short as "same as our other games guys" or as long as 10 minutes (hardly ever that long) depending on the AR experience and anticipated intensity/temperature of game.

Look in the past threads for the full list to choose from.

One of the absurdities of Refereeing IMO, this pre-match spiel should all be in the back of the book
Most of the stuff should be SOP with only a few personal aspects of Refereeing open for discussion

Have a look at the Hampshire FA website under the Referees tab, where there is a guide for this.
