Has anyone heard any rumours of how many new L3 referees the FA may be looking to take for the 2019/20 season?
That and you need refs to have achieved the positions in the merit table. More chance of retaining potebtial demotees than promoting L4s not in promo positions.Some say lots (more than last year), others say not many. Depends on where you are in the country and a number of other factors. You'll find out the facts in early May.
That surprises me. The Pools are specificially told that they cannot release the end of marking seasons bandings until the FA releases the names of promotions (at least at L4)I asked, the season finished end February so the details are all finalised.
Not bitter in the slightest, I appreciate it’s not for everyone, it was my choice, others want to progress, good luck to all, just ignore those club marksYou still sound incredibly bitter SF, I know of a level 3 who barely officiates as he is in the army. Sometimes going months at a time without a single fixture.
Others at 4/3 close mid week for the duration of the season, some I know close 1 if not 2 of the Saturdays in a month!
Yeah fully aware how the system works, I've been doing it long enough!! As you are, I'm amazed other pools work differently.
