FA Referee Exchange Programme 2017 - Referee Exchange (2017-10-09) (2017-10-31)

By John D'Arcy

Following on from the success of last year the Kent FA and North Riding FA will again work in partnership to support and develop referees. Last seaosn saw a team from North Riding travel to Kent for the weekend with the Kent officials travelling up North.

Due to its success the programme has been agreed for this season and a team of promising officials from Kent travelled up to Middlebrough last weekend where they took charge of several games over the weekend including Middlesbrough v Newcastle in the Academy. North Riding officials will be travelling to Kent and will be with us from the 20th October to the 21st October.

On the Friday the officials will undergo some technical training at the Kent FA HQ followed by appointments at Millwall FC Academy on the Saturday. On the Sunday the officials joined by referees from Kent will take charge of 4 KYL Under 18 fixtures before they return home on Sunday evening.

The Kent Youth League has agreed to support this initiative which I am grateful for in terms of supporting the development of referees.
