Referee Promotions

Congratulations to the Hertfordshire match officials who have progressed to a higher level

We are delighted to announce details of the referees who have achieved promotion in the 2023-24 season

Following the conclusion of the latest quarterly review process, referees seeking promotion were informed if they had been successful in their efforts to attain a higher level and we would like to congratulate them all on their achievement.

All of these promoted officials should be proud of their efforts, delivering consistently high standards both on and off the pitch through the season and we wish them every success for the future. We are proud that there are so many talented referees in Hertfordshire across the grassroots and professional game and it is always pleasing to see them being rewarded for their hard work and dedication with progress to the next level.

We would also like to thank everyone involved in supporting our referees in reaching this stage, including the observers who go out week in week out, to help develop referees and provide essential feedback.
