Do I Need To Supply Or Confirm a Referee?

Posted: September 13, 2018 |

Referees guidance for managers:
 
U7 – U10: The centre manager will sort your referee out for you, no need to do anything.
 
U11 – U12: The centre manager will sort the referee but you will supply an assistant(Linesman/Woman). The referee will supply a black bib and flag for the assistant referee. Please make sure black bibs are used wherever possible.
 
U13 Up: The Home team should confirm the ref using details from full time and our website (if all is set up correctly an email with details should be received). As before supply an assistant and use the black bib provided. PLEASE REMEMBER TO CALL YOUR REFEREE.
 
Any questions or concerns just contact our Referee’s Secretary Alistair Smith.

Can I Submit My Result Via Text Message?

Posted: September 12, 2018 |

For Mini Soccer no.

For U11 – U17 team administrators will be allowed to enter their results via SMS for their team. Instructions on how to do this are sent to each team administrator using the mobile phone number you provide just after the kickoff time for the fixture.

Only results from these mobile phone numbers will be processed.

If the same mobile phone number is used for more than one team then the team administrator will be required to enter the team short code when sending in the result.

You can create up to two team administrators per team.
