League Procedure Regarding Referee Appointments, and Guidance Notes for All Clubs

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY & PLEASE ADHERE TO THESE INSTRUCTIONS AT ALL TIMES

  1. Referees are appointed to games on this league in conjuction with SHCFA policy. The SHCFA have stipulated that the top division of each of the Sunday Sanction Leagues must be covered as a priority. The remainder of the Leagues allocation of Referees will be shared equally throughout the rest of the League. It may not always be possible to appoint a Referee to all fixtures.

  2. If you do not have a Referee appointed, then please attempt to source someone from your own list of contacts. All Registered Referees are now required to have completed a CRC check, so please bear this in mind.

  3. ANY UNQUALIFIED/STAND-IN REFEREE IS ALLOWED TO REFEREE A MAXIMUM OF TWO GAMES FOR ANY PARTICULAR TEAM, AND SHALL HAVE THE SAME POWERS & DUTIES AS A REGISTERED REFEREE

  4. If a Referee has not been appointed to one of your fixtures and you do manage to find one, please inform the Referees Secretary at least 48 hours before the fixture. You will need to provide the persons name and NPD Number. Should you fail to do this, and a Registered Referee becomes available, you will be required to use them. - NO EXCEPTIONS.

  5. Please do not call or email Referees on the contact list if you have not been allocated a Referee. They will not be available or will be on a different League/Cup.

  6. All Referees must receive confirmation of ground directions/kick off time etc by email at least 6 days prior to the fixture taking place. Failure to carry out this instruction will incur a fine, and you will lose the appointed Referee.

  7. No games will be postponed due to a Referee not being appointed or being unavailable.

  8. Only Telephone Referees to inform them that your game is postponed. This is your responsibility, not the leagues. You should also inform the Fixtures Secretary and the Referees Secretary, even if no Referee has been appointed.

  9. Please offer to pay the Referee his Match Fee & Expenses - £ 25 plus 35p per mile before the game. Cash Only Please. No Cheques or Bank Transfers.

  10. Referees Marks; Please think carefully & objectively before marking Referees, and try to look at the game as a whole, and not just isolated incidents. Marks below 50 will require a report to emailed to the Referees Secretary within 3 working days. But please don't just mark the Referee 51, and not put a report in. A mark of 51 and no report does nothing to improve Referee Standards. A mark of 49, and a brief outline of why gives the SHCFA & ultimately the Referee in question something to focus on.

  11. Please do not phone the Referees secretary to complain about Referees performances or isolated incidents.

  12. Please inform the Referees Secretary if a cup game is called off for any reason.

In view of past misunderstandings, I feel that I should remind all clubs of the following regarding postponements.
