Referees and RESPECT at Junior Matches

10 Jan 2019

Dear Parents

This is a reminder to everyone that the referees at our junior matches are to be respected at all times, whether you agree with their decisions or not.

Our junior referees are teenagers and young adults who need encouragement and support from us as the spectators and parents watching our children play football.  Any sideline criticism of the referee or their decisions is not acceptable at Fernhurst FC or any other club.  

By modelling responsible behaviour on the sideline as a spectator we are helping our juniors footballers and young volunteers to become respectful athletes.

Our players, referees and volunteers follow the FA Code of Conduct on the pitch so please, as spectators, do the same.

If you are the only recipient of this email in your household please ensure any other adults that watch junior games are aware of this.

Many thanks.

Fernhurst Junior Football Committee
