Protect your Club - Set out your Stall - and mean it
Last season saw a great deal of Press and Social Media coverage describing the shocking scale of abuse received by grassroots referees. A wide ranging BBC questionnaire found that 98% of referees who replied, had experienced verbal abuse and almost one third had experienced physical abuse. These statistics are both worrying and unacceptable. A Surrey County FA Working Party (in which this League is represented) has also discovered similar levels of referee abuse.
In response, the FA have been imposing increased penalties on Clubs who cannot control their members or supporters. Some very heavy fines are now being applied to clubs in cases of abuse to a Referee.
And please remember that whoever is acting as the Referee for a game, be they parent or whoever, has the full powers and authority of any qualified Referee and must report all incidents of abuse or misconduct.
BUT – why wait until one of your Club members is abusive to a referee and ends up costing you time and serious money in fines?
YOU can prevent getting your Club embroiled in County Hearings and Charges, by making it crystal clear to your coaches and supporters that abuse to a Referee will not be tolerated by you.
Your Club can take immediate action that a League cannot take. You can warn your members and then remove those who chose to ignore you.
Don’t be the next Club in the Dock for referee abuse. Set out your stall to your parents – and mean it.
FA Trial to remove deliberate heading in matches at younger age groups. from the start of the 2022-23 season
The FA began this trial at the start of season 2022-23 and it has now been extended to cover the current season (2023-24).
At the League Clubs Meeting in September 2022 it was decided (based on the members vote) to adopt the trial for age groups Under 7 and Under 8 only.
Given that the FA trial is now continuing, it was proposed by a Member Club at the AGM in June 2023 that the trial should now include the Under 9’s (who have already played one year without deliberate ‘heading’). This was agreed by majority vote of Member Clubs.
For Season 2023-24 the trial to remove deliberate heading will therefore apply to age groups Under 7, Under 8 and Under 9 only.
