Welcome to the home of Renfrewshire Referees

Dear Members,
Firstly, I must take this initial opportunity to thank you all for the continued support, patience and understanding during the current COVID pandemic.

We are now seeing the progression of Scottish football restarting and I am hopeful that all our members will be back out there officiating shortly. This will be a season like no other. Please remember to take the time before any refereeing activity to ensure you are familiar with the current government guidelines and fulfil the necessary protocols required.
Becoming president of Renfrewshire Referee’s is a massive privilege. The management committee continues to work hard behind the scenes to keep the association in action. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us through the normal channels. The new entrants training class is now underway, I would like to welcome all participants. Well done to our members who were recently promoted at the last grading meeting. Keep checking our Facebook and Twitter for any other key dates and future classes. I would encourage you to attend association training on Tuesday evenings from 7pm, held at Renfrew Sports Centre. I assure you a warm welcome and it would be great to see everyone attending throughout the year when available.

The dates for our member meetings are listed on our website and in our handbook. I would kindly remind members that if you are unable to attend any meeting, apologies should be submitted in advance to the Secretary. The coaching sessions are delivered by 2 of our experienced Category 1 referees with a focus on keeping members updated on the current laws of the game and the latest match guidelines.

I wish you a safe enjoyable return to sport and the best of luck for the forthcoming season. Our association continues to be in a strong healthy position and that is credit to the efforts and outstanding support of everyone involved.

Yours in sport.

Graham Grainger

President
