Referee Promotion Window OPEN

Worcestershire FA referees have until Tuesday 28th February 2017 to apply for promotion in the next marking period.

Following a successful 2016/17 season for Worcestershire match officials, the County FA Referees’ Department is pleased to launch the promotion period for the 2017/18 season. The pathway for referees wishing to progress is well supported with fantastic opportunities to aid you with your referee development.

Applying to join the promotion scheme for the next season demonstrates your intention to progress and develop as a referee. If successful in your promotion you will be able to referee a higher standard of football and progress along the refereeing pathway in Worcestershire and beyond.

Worcestershire FA will aim to provide you with the highest quality of support and training whilst in the promotion scheme which aspires to offer you with the best possible football experience. We wish to identify individuals who have the ability to progress and will support them to fulfil their potential. Worcestershire FA is committed to providing you with in-service training events and match observations.

“We have had excellent feedback throughout the 2016/17 season, not least following the introduction of the first ever Worcestershire FA Centre of Refereeing Excellence (WFA CORE). All promotion seeking match officials are invited to be part of WFA CORE to aid their progression as a match official” – Ollie Williams, Referee Workforce Manager.

“We are privileged in Worcestershire to be able to offer excellent training opportunities from experienced and committed trainers and tutors to those seeking to officiate at a higher level and/or to pursue a refereeing career” – Nichola Trigg, Chief Executive.

There is an informative promotion guidance document available to all WFA match officials and further details can be found by clicking here.

Worcestershire FA would also like to thank our coaches, mentors, observers and volunteers for their continuous support and efforts alongside the promotion and observation scheme.

The promotion application form can be downloaded via the document below. For more information, please contact our Referee Workforce Manager by email.
