Referees course heading to Scarborough

editorial image

A referees course is heading to Scarborough in April as the North Riding County FA look to plug the huge shortage of officials in the area.

The worrying lack of referees in the area led to the controversial rule 13b implemented, which has seen a number of Saturday League games officiated by a player of one of the teams involved.

The course is to be undertaken over five separate sessions, and falls into six sections. The course costs £130.


Wednesday April 12: Module 1 Introduction: 6.30pm - 9.30pm

Wednesday April 19: FA CRC / Safeguarding: 6.30pm - 9.30pm

Sunday April 23: Day 1: 9.30am - 5.00pm

Wednesday April 26: Misconduct Module: 6.30pm - 9.30pm

Sunday April 30: Day 2: 9.30am - 5.00pm
