Congratulations Justy. Well done. Hard work starts now to make sure you are ready for the test.
Good luck to everybody else.
Be interested in the full list once that is available.

Congratulations. Slightly strange year to get it given you have no idea when you'll be able to take the fitness test, means a long pre-season of keeping fit ... :)

Nicely done Justy Love! As mentioned above - very much enjoy the good news with your friends, family, and refereeing colleagues. You've worked hard to get here, and have done so through merit, so you should be 100% proud of that. It's now time to realistically assess your goals and implement a plan of attack moving forward to get those.

I've never really got the phrase "the hard work starts now" - I know people mean well, but the phrase itself infers you haven't been working hard, or haven't been working as hard as you could - only you can know that.

Plenty of new L4 from Lincs FA. I wonder how much this was influenced by the fact that NCE Prem becomes a supply league this season. They are going to have some mileage to some matches, as their Pool includes West Yorks league. For a 2.30 kick off near Leeds, they will have to leave Thursday night (I know the road network......) :)

Huge congrats to everyone on both lists. Delighted for all but especially for the Herts FA contingent ... on the L3 list there are a couple of future stars and a couple of richly deserving experienced refs. Onwards and upwards ....

Congratulations to all that achieved their promotion.

I can actually claim I've worked with all of the promoted Nottinghamshire Officials this season.

Interesting to see the names! I've worked with 2 of the new Essex L3's - one of who I thought was excellent both times I worked with him, the other of who didn't get in touch with his AR's pre-game, turned up late and never really got control of a fairly feisty game, including 2 mass cons....

I recognise the names of the Derbyshire ones, and should've been on a cup final with one of them, obviously COVID put a stop to that.

Congratulations to everyone who got promoted.

I got mine the other day, promoted to 3A.

But I'm told next season they're getting rid of the letter grades, so I'll be grade '3'. I'm not sure if this means, that whether I got promoted or not I'd be 3 regardless, as the information hasn't come my way yet.

However, I will say, I'm very proud to have achieved 3A. It was my goal to get it, because originally that would have given me the FAW badge. As I understand it, this season the badge is now only given to grade 2 referees and A/R's, so I won't be getting that fabled badge just yet. Even so, I don't care, I got my target, I proved I could do it.

Next season, maybe I will aim for grade 2 promotion? But I think I have to wait and see, because of COVID I've not been able to do much in terms of training atm, so I don't feel I'm in a good place compared to last season.

But enough negativeness, congratulations to everyone who got promoted. :)
