The window for Referees Registration for the 2018/19 season is now open.
All referees in Somerset can now register via their Whole Game accounts.
Registrations received before the 1st of July are just £20, however any registrations received after July 1st are £25.
There is guidance at the bottom of this page around how to complete your registration via Whole Game.
This season it is incredibly important that all referees correctly declare all of the formats of football in which they officiate. Please ensure that you enter this information correctly when you are completing your registration.
Personal Accident Insurance
This year we have added new products to Whole Game which you are able to purchase as part of your registration for the 2018/19 season.
This season we are offering Referees Personal Accident Insurance for the price of just £5. This insurance covers you in the event of injury whist you are refereeing. This insurance is offered through the FA's recognised broker, Bluefin. Attached below is the simple and brief policy outline. We really recommend
Referees Training Tops and County badges
As you navigate your registration in Whole Game, you will see the opportunity to purchase a Nike training top. These are £10 and we have them in sizes Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large. You will be able to select your size within Whole Game during registration.
Note: These shirts fit on the small side so you may wish to consider ordering one size larger than you normally would.
Referees can also purchase an embroidered Somerset FA badge for their refereeing kit through the registration process in Whole Game. These are priced at £5.
Criminal Record Checks
All referees officiating in youth football require an in-date FA Criminal Record Check. The FA CRC Department is currently experiencing a backlog, so it is advised that any referee whose CRC is due to expire before August is advised to act sooner rather than later.
