    Best ground / team reffed

    Ground - Celtic Park (AR for a charity match) Teams - Rangers v Hibernian U17s (Again, AR). Although I'm due to referee Rangers v Man City U15s next week which should be a very good game.

    Referee Observer

    @Padfoot We didn't speak about the condition of the pitch before KO. It was a fairly wet day, but before KO the pitch seemed to be holding up okay, and I was more than happy to play. The pitch deteriorated very quickly, and after about 10 minutes players were starting to complain about it...

    Referee Observer

    Hi all, I decided to abandon my match at HT today due to deterioration of part of the pitch which I felt posed a danger to player safety. As I was considering my decision the referee observer, in full view of players and management, called me to the side of the pitch and tried to persuade me...

    Open Age Events leading up to kick off.

    HI Dylan, Not sure where you're based and what the norms are surrounding when teams give you your match fee, but I'll give you an idea of what I do up here in Scotland and if applicable you can take some pointers. I'll usually arrive about 45/60 minutes prior to kick off and introduce myself...

    Post Match at Wembley

    That's not as bad as I thought actually. I'll probably be getting a coach back from London Victoria at 11:45 so it seems like I should have no problem making that, thanks :)

    Post Match at Wembley

    Hi Guys Just wondering if any of you know how long it typically takes to get from Wembley back into central London after a match. I'm looking at coming down from Glasgow for the Tottenham v Monaco match on Wednesday 14th September, and have no clue how bad trying to get back is! Any help here...

    Velcro badge patches

    Anyone know where I can pick up velcro badge patches for my jersey? Going abroad for a tournament and will be getting a badge similar to the FIFA ones to use.

    How do I approach tonight's match?

    Bit of a mixed bag really. There was a pre-match (albeit quite limited but sufficient enough to cover the main points) which I was happy with, but the other 2 weren't interested in going for a warm-up so I just went for one myself, which I thought looked quite un-professional.

    How do I approach tonight's match?

    I don't know them personally no, but they are part of my refereeing association. I know that they never attend weekly training or our monthly meetings, and don't attend regional training days. I've also seen U13 play off and cup games for this league before, and the referees have always been...

    How do I approach tonight's match?

    I was actually thinking of perhaps offering to give a pre-match for the referee if it's not something he's used to. I'll be as encouraging as I can be and hopefully guide them in the right direction. I'm not expecting perfection of course, just effort :)

    How do I approach tonight's match?

    That's along the lines of what I was thinking Will. No point in continually pushing the ref to do something he either isn't going to do or doesn't want to do. It just annoys me seeing others not taking their role as seriously as they should.

    How do I approach tonight's match?

    Managed to pick up an U13s promotion play-off match line for a local league tonight. Without wanting to seem to far up myself, it's the sort of match that's a bit below my ability as a referee now, but it needed covering so I thought why not. The issue is, the referees that typically do these...

    Two yellow cards in the same phase of play?

    I'm a little confused here @lincs22. You say that @lincs22 You're saying that I cannot allow the 2nd advantage as in law I should stop play and caution the player twice. However the law you've quoted clearly states that even when play can be stopped to send someone off, advantage should be...

    Two yellow cards in the same phase of play?

    An interesting scenario arose in an U14 match today and I'm not sure if I dealt with it correctly. Blue player is just beyond the half-way line attacking the yellow goal, which looks to be a very promising attack. Yellow player clearly grabs hold of his shirt and attempts to pull him down. As I...

    Paris World Cup 2016

    @jack.prescott I've just sent an e-mail out stating my interest in it. What are the costs that we need to cover for the tournament? I know last year they paid for pretty much everything except the travel to and from Paris, is it similar again?

    Accrington Disallowed Goal

    I assume a few of you may have seen this, but for those who haven't there's a link at the bottom of the post. For those who can't view it, I'll describe what happens. Basically, Accrington play the ball into the box. Player turns and shoots, and the ref blows for half-time just before the ball...
