How to Mark the Referee – U11 to U16 Games
After a game, each club is required to mark the referee 1 to100. Please see this guide on how to mark referees.
Please follow the official FA guidelines when marking referees, which can be found below. I also ask that you be subjective in marking referees and base it on the whole game and not just one decision. Far too many clubs mark a referee who has had a great game 10/100 just because the referee gave, or didn’t give, a penalty in the last minute, and this just isn’t fair. If you mark a match referee 61 or below, a written report explaining this mark will be required.
