New Pathway For Macquarie Referees Stalwart

October 22nd, 2015

Long serving President of Macquarie Referees, Brad Carlin, has been appointed to the new role of Premier Competition Match Officials Coordinator with Northern NSW Football (NNSWF).

Carlin, an active match official with NNSWF since 1977, including 31 years as President of Macquarie Referees, has accepted the role which will aim to enhance the professionalism and management practices for match officials across NNSWF Premier Competitions including the PS4 National Premier Leagues, the Herald Women’s Premier League and NEWFM 1st Division.

The new role is a direct result of a comprehensive review of referees undertaken by NNSWF in 2013. The review identified the need to establish the role to ensure that the professionalism of refereeing kept pace with the growth and continued development of the game in the region.

Carlin’s responsibilities will include match official appointments, recruitment, registrations, accreditation and education, as well as the identification and implementation of a Talented Official Pathway (TOP) program.

“It’s such an exciting and rewarding opportunity to be able to provide new and enhanced pathways for both community and elite level referees,” Carlin said. “I’m really looking forward to providing the opportunities that I have experienced, to other match officials.”

‘My immediate focus is going to be on implementing initiatives aimed at increasing the accreditation standards of match officials and the establishment of a viable pathway for match officials to follow throughout their careers,’ Carlin concluded.

Carlin will commence in his new role in early November.
