We usually have around 50 members each season from all levels of refereeing. Meetings are informal social occasions where we discuss all aspects of football and refereeing in a relaxed atmosphere. At meetings we have either a guest speaker or a discussion topic for the evening. If you are a newly qualified referee or starting out on the promotion ladder then these sessions will be of great benefit to you.

The Society holds a number of social events over the course of the season including quizzes and five a side football. We also operate a mentor scheme which can give you a real advantage in your development, especially if you are looking for promotion or are newly qualified.

Meeting dates for the 2013-14 season are all arranged, this season our meetings will be based on the referee competencies. If there are any particluar issues that members would like to see included, please contact us and we will try to include them.
