Now we have settled down after the Christmas break we plan for another successful REFspect awareness weekend, and can now categorically state that REFspect is certainly well established at grassroots football and will only get bigger and better from here on in.
We would like to thank football’s governing bodies especially the PGMOL, and The PFA FOR their continued support along with the County FA’s. Liverpool FC, Everton FC, Arsenal FC, Man United & Sunderland with many more clubs to follow.
Thanks to Grassroots Football UK & One Two Magazine who have added extra support to the DXTL, REFspect annual awareness weekend scheduled for April 1st 2017. On board are Sheffield & District Junior Sunday League, Lostock Hall JFC, committees clubs and leagues all around the UK.
The message of REFspect is certainly Loud and Clear. “No Referee No Game.
Supporters include The PFA, The FA, PGMOL , FAI and the League Management Association & CFA’s, not forgetting the main body of the awareness weekend our number one supporters, yes grassroots football itself.
The DXTL annual awareness weekend takes place 12th-13th-14th March 2016. We aim to get all Premier league clubs to add their support and join with LFC, EFC, MUFC, Arsenal, Southampton and Sunderland,including the many grassroots leagues/clubs already promoting the reFspect weekend
We ask all junior teams to get involved by awarding fair play medals and pennants to team captains and referees, as a token of fair play reFspect and sportspersonship .
Use your touchline barriers if you have them , as these are a superb visual deterrent towards pitch encroachment and poor touchline behaviour.
Most of all please enjoy your games and offer encouragement to the children and referees win lose or draw the “KEY” to keeping referees and children involved in the sport we all love.
PLEASE GET YOUR CLUB INVOLVED!!!
