East Kent Referee Support Group


Level 7 Referee
We are delighted to be in a position to launch the ‘East Kent Referee Support Group’, which is a volunteer-lead, regional referee support network who are looking to provide additional help, provision and development opportunities to match officials in the ‘East’ of the County. This support group sits outside of the Kent FA set-up, but has full backing and support from the Referee Department at Kent FA.

This new group will be a new ‘Referee’s Association’ (RA), linking directly into the National RA, and look to meet on a monthly basis in a central location to this region. As a resident outside of our initial catchment area, we would like to welcome you to join our group or simply come along to our first evening. Our first meeting will be held at 7pm on Monday 11th March 2019, in Canterbury, with Premier League Referee Kevin Friend launching our inaugural evening!

There is a small fee for the evening, but two options are available to you;
· A £5 administration fee for the remainder of the season, which only sits at £5. This small fee will register you with the National RA, as well as help contribute to some of the small operational costs associated with the group.
· If you do not wish to join the group for the remainder of the season, then there is a £2 entrance fee for the 11th of March.

We would like to reiterate that this is a not-for-profit organisation, and all funds will be re-invested back into developing referees. This is an exciting opportunity for us, as we look to provide localised support for match officials at the grassroots level of the game.
