Changes to the allocation of match Referees 2015/16
We are moving our referee allocation process onto the FA's Full-Time system. This should make it easier for allocations and ensure there are fewer clashes with referees. In order to find your referee simply click the fixture from within the RDYFL website and the fixture with referee allocation (shown bottom left) will be shown. Then go back to the yellow menu League/Referees Directory on the RDYFL website to find that Referees contact details.
Using full time will allow us to allocate referees for multiple weeks at a time which makes it easier to rearrange should a particular allocation fall through. It also allows for planning closed dates should particular referees require a week off and cannot be allocated a game.
I appreciate at first this may be a little tricky and no doubt some issues will arise from the new method, however as youth football moves into the technological era and we incorporate the Whole Game System into our running of the RDYFL, this should eventually make things easier. My thanks go to Andy Bagshaw, Glenn Smithurst and Sean Newton for their work on this.
As always, I welcome your feedback and support,
Thank you as ever,
