Last week, all referees were made aware of details of the changes made by The FA in regards to future promotion time frames. It is strongly recommend that any fully qualified referees (who has refereed for at least twelve months after attaining their FA certificate) and aged 16+ (level 7 referee) to consider going for promotion.

The referee promotion scheme requires referees to officiate in adult football to be assessed, therefore if you are 16+ and have not refereed any adult football before, consider joining an adult league and ask to act as an Assistant Referee to gain some valuable experience first before applying.

If you have all the pre-requisites to apply for promotion contact Alan Willmott – Promotions Co-ordinator at for an application form.


The closing date for the 2019-20 season is Wednesday 31st July.
