Eddie Preece gives Yellow Card to Player

Report Writing

Helping you report misconduct

In the past few seasons there has been considerable changes in the manner in which match officials at all levels of the game can report misconduct of players on the field of play. Since the start of the 2014/15 season referee reports are now being submitted via the Whole Game System.

Referees

Whenever a referee cautions or dismisses a player from the Field of Play or is reporting other forms of misconduct, he/she shall prepare a report of the incident or incidents. Within 2 working days of the match.

Since the launching of the new Whole Game System, Staffordshire referees are now able to report Sending Offs and Cautions online.

Assistant Referees

Neutral Assistant Referees shall, where the referee has dismissed a player from the Field of Play or is reporting other forms of misconduct; prepare and submit a report in a similar fashion as the match referee. A record should be kept of cautions issued in case the County FA requires the Assistant Referee to submit a report.

Personal Hearings

Referees and Neutral Assistant Referees must attend Personal Hearings when required to do so. If a Referee or Assistant Referee fails to attend he/she shall be reported to the appropriate County FA. Referee's having accepted a request to attend a Personal Hearing, are then requested to close the date with all appropriate competitions.
