Referees are a hugely important part of our game and we want to encourage more of you to pick up the whistle.

Feel free to look around the referees section and see the national strategy and find out how to become or progress as a county FA match official. 

Remember at the beginning of the season you will need to re -register as a referee. The County FA will send you the guidance on how to do this. 

If you are struggling to register please contact 

All referees that want to officiate junior football must have a DBS and an in date safeguarding certificate. 

If you need any support with a DBS or Safeguarding course please e-mail
