Applications for referees for season 2018-19
Thu 31st May 2018 | Announcements | By Ian Templeman
The League Management Committee would like to invite applications from Level 7, 6 and 5 referees to officiate in the two new divisions, Division One North and Division One South for season 2018-19.
As many will now be aware, during season 2017/18 the North West Counties Football League, also known as The Hallmark Security League, were successful in their application to The Football Association to run a new Step 6 Division in the North West and surrounding areas, which will give the opportunity for additional Assistant Referees on two Step 6 Divisions, North and South from August 2018.
The new teams that will be incorporated into this Supply League stricture, which will be administered by The North West Counties Football League are:
North: Ashton Town, Avro, Cleator Moor Celtic, Garstang, Longridge Town, Lower Breck, Shelley and Steeton
Southet: Ellesmere Rangers, Linotype Cheadle Heath Nomads, Rylands, St Martins, Stone Dominoes, Stone Old Alleynians, Vauxhall Motors, Wythenshawe Amateurs and Wythenshawe Town
The addition of the new clubs now means that both Step 6 divisions now have 20 clubs in each.
We therefore wish to invite Level 7, 6 or 5 Referees to register for the new Supply League Structure to gain experience as an Assistant Referee on a Step 6 League in a stadium environment.
This has the approval of all relevant County FA Referee Development Officers We do not wish to disrupt your usual Saturday refereeing appointments, but would expect mid-week night availability and at least one Saturday per month. We would like to offer you the opportunity of Officiating at a higher level than what you are currently officiating at the moment.
You may be a Promotion Candidate, of which these Assistant Referee appointments will count towards your promotion, or you may just wish to officiate at a higher level than what you are doing now.
The Football Association have also given their backing for you to register on the North West Counties Supply League for next season. For a registration form please email firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience.
