The FA national awards for continuous service to refereeing

Hertfordshire FA recognises the valuable service referees, and those involved in supporting referees, perform in our national game.

Active referees, observers, instructors, mentors and anyone else involved in refereeing can be nominated, no matter which county they have served in, or in which role, as long as it is continuous service.

There are three awards for the following periods of continuous service:

  • 25 Years - certificate
  • 40 Years - certificate
  • 50 Years - certificate and a personalised medal

You can download the nomination form and send it into Phil Sharp, Referee Development Officer at Hertfordshire FA, or email: phil.sharp@hertfordshirefa.com
