Our league has one of the best referee attendance at matches within Sunday Football. This is due to the great referees we have and to the great work done by Ted Gore, the league's Referee's Secretary who was in the position from 1982-2012. The league salutes his superb work over three decades. From the start of the 2012/13 season the mantle was passed to the very capable Jermaine Wright.
At the forefront of every game and without whom the game cannot be fairly conducted is the referee. There’s something to be said about a person who turns up each week and gives their full concentration, devotion and efforts in giving 22 players a good fair match. Think what would happen if your game had no referee?
We make sure that our referees are respected and looked after throughout the season. It is also your responsibility to make sure the referee feels safe before, during and after games. Whilst you may have a whole team to watch your back a referee often turns up to a game on his own!
Where to start?
Whatever your becoming a referee the London Football Association runs various referee courses at reasonable rates for you to train and quality.
Our league will ONLY hire fully qualified referees who have taken the necessary courses and passed the relevant exams.

Match officials are paid in full before kick-off. The home team is responsible for paying all match officials their full fee. The home team will then recover half the fee from the opposition.
Please also make sure when paying the referee that you provide a 'good' match ball for the game.
Every week throughout the season club secretaries mark their referee's performance on the official match team sheet after their game.
At the end of the season the referee averaging the highest marks will be the winner of the Evan's and O'Reilly Trophy.
Referees will also mark your team for the sportsmanship you displayed throug the game.
