Furthermore, whilst grassroots referees will usually be operating in isolation we appreciate that many of you will act in a team of three as assistants on higher leagues and also, at this time of year, in friendlies. The guidance from the FA Referee Department is very clear - you must travel separately unless it is with members of the same household or part of a support bubble.

Development & Courses
Referees perform a vital role in the game, and with the growth in the popularity of football, particularly for women and children, the demand for officials is increasing.
Lincolnshire FA run Basic Referee Training Courses throughout the year. These courses have been revamped by The FA to ensure that referees are much better prepared, with a greater emphasis placed on practical modern training methods delivered by quality FA trained tutors.
