Level 7 Referee
So had junior u15 game this morning, pitch was really soft but all parties including me happy for game to go ahead. Pitch wouldn’t take a second game and certainly wouldn’t take open age game that was due on at 2. Had an open age game locally at 2, went to pitch was too soft to play on so called it off. No problems. Then drove 12 miles to open age venue scheduled for tomorrow and consider that too soft too so make the call to call it off 24 hours in advance thinking, player safety and sufficient notice. Then social media comment made saying ref can’t be arsed, ref going on the ale and a comment referring to me as a spack! Over sensitive? Maybe. Fuming? Yes. They’ve now got another ref who will allow game to be played. Have I acted too prematurely? Should I let it go?
