The Respect programme has been active in the Westmorland FA area for 3 seasons and from the start of the 2012/13 season, all of the affiliated leagues have signed up to the Respect campaign and achieved Respect League status.

Following each game we would like all referees to send an email to with the Respect Mark awarded to each team using the Marking Forms, which are available in the document section below.

Respect Marks should be awarded for all:

  • Kent Valley Junior Football League and Cup competitions
  • Westmorland & Furness Under 18s League and Cup Competitions
  • Westmorland Association Football League and Cup Competitions
  • Westmorland County FA Cup Competitions.

If a mark of 6 or less is awarded, then Referees will also need to include a written report giving the reason why this score is awarded.

Guidance notes on the scheme are available in the document section below.

At the end of the season the Respect Marks will be collated and one team from each league will be awarded the Respect Team of the Year Award and receive a brand new playing strip for the following season.

If you have any questions regarding the Referee’s Respect Marking Scheme please do not hesitate to contact
