NEWFA are holding an information evening for those who would like to know more about becoming a match official.
Do you fancy becoming a referee?? Are you aged 14 years or older?? Do you want to earn more pocket money that doing a paper round every morning?? In the local junior leagues, you can get paid from £18 a game on a Saturday morning. For the adults’ game fees start at £25 obviously going higher the higher the league you officiate in. The North East Wales Football Association (NEWFA) are holding a number of face to face meetings at Brymbo Sports Club, Tanyfron, Wrexham in an attempt to give any potential referees out there as much help and information needed to guide them through the process of applying for and passing the advanced referees course. The course as is stands is an online course and costs £80, this includes the online course, a full matchday referee’s kit with accessories, ie, flags, whistle, note book and cards. As well as having all the above, you will have the full support from NEWFA and me in particular. NEWFA are looking at holding these introduction evenings on Thursday 16th January, Thursday 30th January and Thursday 13th February 2020. The meeting would start at 7:30pm and last no longer than an hour. If you’re interested and want to look at the course before attending one of our meeting please visit www.becomearef.wales I hope to see you at one of the introduction meetings.
