Martin Etheridge is the SSYFL Referees Secretary. As an active Level 6 referee now in his 34th season, Martin knows first-hand what it's like to be 'in the middle' and he will be pushing to ensure that the referee contribution is fully recognised. We would like to be able to appoint qualified and registered referees to every match in the SSYFL and have built up a panel of over 100 officials. If you would like a referee for your game then please let Martin know the age group, opponents and location. The earlier you do this the better. Officials will be entitled to charge the following inclusive fee for all matches which must be paid in full before or directly after the match. SSYFL FEES ARE: Mini Soccer (U7 - U10) - £15.00 Under 11 to Under 14 - £20.00 Under 15 to Under 18 - £25.00 Once the refs are allocated, you and the referee will be sent the same e-mail confirmation. Clubs must still confirm the arrangement with the referee in case he does not know the venue. Often one referee will be used for two games when the location(s) and/or kick off times permit. Given that many clubs have a number of teams playing on the same ground with staggered ko times, it therefore makes sense to talk to your colleagues. For those clubs with mini soccer teams, Surrey County Football Association run training sessions (one evening only) for officiating mini soccer matches. Once you have completed this training session, you are qualified to officiate mini soccer matches. They also run similar workshops for Club Linesmen. If you or a member of your club are interested in attending any of these courses let Martin know or download the REFEREE EDUCATION AND TRAINING QUESTIONNAIRE, which can then be sent to the SCFA Referee Development Officer Click here for download
