  • If you are no longer available for schools matches, please notify a) the allocations officer & b) the league i.e. me immediately.
  • If you know of any other referees interested in officiating at schools matches they must contact the league first (allocators must refer any queries for inclusion to us initially for administration reasons (posting of pads/cards etc.).
  • Allocators will be keeping up-to-date record of contact made from schools, referees assigned to games etc. & provide monthly report to the league, so that match card return can be analysed.
  • Allocations will be made based on grade & irrespective of league that the referee is associated with.
  • Referees failing to use/return cards to operate on a two-step disciplinary basis – step one, warning that removal from school list to follow, step two, removal from list for minimum of one season. Return to list only on basis of agreement to use/return all match cards.
  • Same structure to apply to referees who accept appointments directly from schools/contact schools seeking matches.
