About RAW! - The Association

Take up the Whistle Take up the Whistle If you are interested in taking up the whistle, please do not think that starting young is the only route possible.

Many ex players become referees when finishing their playing careers and get a great deal of enjoyment from the change of involvement.

Lets look at the advantages.....

All referees have their personal ambitions, for some it is to reach the International Panel (FIFA), for others continued involvement putting something back into the game and being recognised by appointment to cup finals at local league level.

The main advantages are;

  • Lots of fresh air and exercise.
  • Continued active involvement in the game you love.
  • Enjoyment - Yes you do have to put up with some moaning but the majority of people connected with the game recognise that it would be much the poorer without referees.
  • Good company - In refereeing you make friends for life.
  • Money - Small rewards at first but as you progress the fees earned during a season soon mount up.

It has never been a better time to take up the whistle so why not give the National Referees Officer, Rodger Gifford, a call or drop him a line.
