Referee Appointments notice.
As you are aware the number of referee's making themselves available to the league has reduced considerably this season for no particular reasons.
This is a general trend across all leagues in the county and generally around the country.
The AM section is nearing to 100% coverage each week as we have the use of the younger referee's who are starting out on there careers, but in the PM section we have to rely on the over 16 referee's and the older guys and girls, and as I said we are seeing more not taking up the whistle at the weekends. We still have a small pool of committed referee's and hopefully when the County Cup Finals come round at the end of the season we will see these referee's rewarded for committing to youth football.
A thank you must go to the teams who know a referee or two and help out each week by getting them to take a game.
So we ask that you understand the difficulties we face each week appointing to games but rest assured we will continue to try and cover as many games as we can.
