Today I have received some feedback from 2 clubs into the Temporary Dismissals scheme which is in place for all CYFL matches this season. I would welcome feedback from clubs in relation to how this is working, both from a referee and team perspective - please email any feedback - both good and constructive over so that we can monitor the success of the scheme.
I also attach an email from Mike Desborough which he has sent out to the Bedfordshire referees today, who are part of the Central Appointments System.
It has been reported to me that a handful of referees are using the Sin Bin process for offences besides dissent.
Temporary Dismissals (Sin Bin) is in use for DISSENT ONLY. The following competitions are using Temporary Dismissals;
Bedford & District Sunday League
Chiltern Youth League
Bedfordshire Youth Saturday League
Chiltern Junior Sevens
All other yellow card offences are dealt with in the normal manner and players must not be told to leave the field of play for said offences. Players must only be told to leave the field of play and placed into the Sin Bin for dissent.
I look forward to receiving any feedback that you have
Secretary, Chiltern Youth Football League
