    Any buzzer flags for sale?

    Anybody selling, or know of anybody selling a set of buzzer flags? Pref touchline or evrocom, but will consider any others. Asking around for a mate - doesn't want to spend over £250 (tight arse is gonna find it hard!)

    Dress Code: Sensible clothing

    So game Saturday afternoon at a local ground - referee said Sensible clothing, no jeans or tracksuits. What would you wear? My last 2 games where there has been a dress code - I felt under dressed, as the others both had suits on. Was thinking of wearing a suit with a jumper underneath, so if...

    Promotion Level 7-6 Criteria

    So thinking of going for promotion this year, as advised, but have a few questions? Do you have to spend a full season at Level 7? I have spent about 4 months at this level, and the 20 games, do they have to be OA? Have seen some places they have but in others they haven't specified. Cheers...

    Pushed - Non-Sanctioned game

    I was meant to be on the line on Sunday for a league game, however that was called off. A mate of mine runs a supporters team, who had a friendly against an ex-league local side (reds), who were a group of mates who partialy knew this supporters team, anyway he was after a ref so I'd do it...

    Chester V Wrexham

    So Chester V Wrexham took place on Saturday.. Heres 2 major incidents. 2:30 Chester pen. Soft, but in my eyes it's a penalty, a few have agreed with me, a few havent. And finally 4:30 into this, bit of a scuffle and can just about see a clear punch on Chester 15. 1. Penalty or no penalty...

None of them knew the price of the ones made...

    First game back 2017

    Guess it's the first weekend back reffing for 2017 for majority of us? Certainly was mine, definitely felt the break but certainly didn't ruin my performance. Cardless game, but definitely wasn't easy. Probably my last middle for a while too.

    Dealing with Player Managers

    My game today saw a player manager, and just had this thought to my self: What do you do to send a player/manager off, in the managerial position? Obviously if he was playing, and shown a red he would be gone, but if I had to send him off from the touchline, would it be the same as sending a...

    Yellow or get away with it?

    Blue vs Greens U12 today, Green 9 shoots, blocked by Blue 3 hand on the goal, the ball goes in & Greens take goal. Obviously if he hadn't had scored, it would've been a Greens penalty and a Blue Red for DOGSO, but should I have shown the Blue 3 a yellow after the goal?
