As you are all aware i am starting my second stint as referees appointments secretary replacing brian fox.There are several issues to tackle as you can all appreciate but my ultimate aim is to get everybody back on-side as it were & to get you all enjoying your sunday football again.Regardless of post-codes,age,level,colour or creed everybody will be made welcome to officiate in this league & i aim to treat every referee with equal fairness & respect.As referees we all have a massive role to play in football at all levels & should endeavour to set examples to all involved in the game.
I am going to arrange a meeting for us all & the reasoning behind this is that it will give me the opportunity to meet those referees that i dont already know & also to register so that i can update my contact details i.e.mobile numbers & e-mails etc.Your co-operation on the day would be greatly appreciated so please do your best to attend,date to follow.
Lastly,i would like to thank Brian fox for all his hard work over the last few seasons,having done this job before i know just how difficult it can be at times.Theres been quite a bit said lately of some shortcomings but i will NOT hear of anymore critiscism aimed at brian,he is a good man & did his best for all of you,so lets all just wish brian the very best in whatever he decides to do with his spare time in the future.
I look forward to working with you all next season & perhaps sharing the odd pint here & there.
ps.there are still 3 places left on the referees golf day at scarthingwell next thursday ( 27th ) should any of you be interested.
