A nice picture of a presentation to seven Bedfordshire FA affiliated Referees along with Richard Everitt of The 61 FC (Luton), I believe it is at Kenilworth Road:

May be an image of 8 people, people standing and text that says "F YAI HGK Match Officials being awarded their kit courtesy of A&H International, mDonnellan Peter Brown, Gavin Muge, Richard Everitt, Chris O'Donnell Richard Robinson Andrew Medl"

Another top quality offside decision at the weekend. Fortunately it didn't cost us. Would have gone 3-1 up with 10 to play rather than having had to squeeze through on penalties after conceding in the

Who is this Official you speak of?

It reminded me a bit of Martin Peters ghosting in at the far post or an Alan Gilzean flicked header

Guidance issued this week by the FA Referees Committee on Promotions and Reclassifictions for the 2020/21 season following a meeting of the Committee on 17 March:

The Referees' Association - Promotions and Reclassifications – Season 2020/21 (the-ra.org)

With insufficient data to justifiably make decisions regarding promotion and reclassification and given the fact that most referees have not officiated for many months, the FA Referees’ Committee believes that promotion and reclassification should not be implemented at the end of season 2020/21.

PetetheGreek - Just to bring you out of the woodwork if I may, what is your view on this argument between Jamie Carragher and Micah Richards out of interest:

Jamie is correct here and the Referee has got it wrong.

In the same way an AR will not raise his/her flag for a tight off side in case they get it wrong and inadvertently chalk off a legitimate goal, the same thinking applies here.

Let Bellingham score and then see what VAR says.

I wonder whether PetetheGreek knows of this Official who ran the line recently, on Saturday 19 June, in the Old Hat v Shepperton Pumas Middlesex FA Junior Trophy Final at Rectory Park, he must be just out of short trousers:

Surely it is getting harder and harder for you these days to pass the annual fitness test, all that moussaka, kleftiko, pastitsio, soutzoukakia and bougatsa over the years must be taking its toll.

A Mediterranean diet is a healthy diet.

Fitness test is a doddle.

Not SSML but sad news to report that 1985 FA Cup Final Referee Peter Willis has passed away at the age of 85, I'm sure he was one of PetetheGreek's boyhood heroes:

If a team official, substitute, substituted or sent-off player or outside agent enters the field of play, the referee must:

• only stop play if there is interference with play

• have the person removed when play stops

• take appropriate disciplinary action If play is stopped and the interference was by:

• a team official, substitute, substituted or sent-off player, play restarts with a direct free kick or penalty kick

• an outside agent, play restarts with a dropped ball


Outside agent

Any animal, object or structure, etc., as well as any person who is not a match official or on the team list (players, substitutes and team officials)

======================================================

No goal. 

Re-start is a drop ball.

Some interesting looking events for Officials where there is no requirement to join the High Wycombe & District Referees Society to be eligible to attend:

That's not even close, who had the flag, Stevie Wonder?

I can only assume that PetetheGreek was on the tie, it's strange the Tring Athletic match report doesn't mention the offside decision:

Okay but I am surprised. What did you think of this terrible blunder last night:

PetetheGreek - This is an interesting article, what do you think of Mark Clattenburg out of interest. I see that he has tattoos which you said you hated with Referees and it was un-professional, he even says 'why shouldn’t a Referee have a nose piercing if they want', I can't imagine you with one:

Clattenburg reveals he quit refereeing after realising he ‘can’t be bothered with idiots like Jose Mourinho complaining’ (thesun.co.uk)

I'm too fussed how Referees look as long as they can do the job like Mark did.
