North East Women Referee Development Group

North East Women Referee Development Group – August Meeting

The third meeting of the year took place this week for the North East Women Referee Development Group, offering its members the opportunity to officiate in a Mini Development Tournament.

Under 16 Girls teams from Durham WFC, Middlesbrough LFC, Norton & Stockton Ancients LFC and Newcastle United FC Kicks took part in the tournament aimed at building experience and confidence in the match officials.

Each match official got the opportunity to act as a Referee and Assistant Referee in a number of games and received instant coaching and advice from the Senior Referee Coaches in attendance.

All of the matches were officiated superbly by our team of female referees from Durham, North Riding and Northumberland and provided an extremely valuable learning experience which will undoubtedly have equipped them for their future matches.
