Young Referees Honoured at 2020 NNSWF Annual Youth Referee Evening

November 28th, 2020

Like for clubs and players, 2020 has been an interesting challenge for match officials, however like always, our trusted referees old and new pulled up their socks, dusted off their flags and ensured our Premier Leagues were played fair and square.

In lieu of a typical seated presentation evening (due to COVID restrictions) Northern NSW Football hosted a casual outdoor event at Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility followed by the annual ‘Challenge Round’ – where referees took to the field to give their boots a run.

Senior Officer – Match Official Administration and Development Brad Carlin said whilst the official evening couldn’t be held, we simply couldn’t miss celebrating the end of what was a difficult yet, very successful season of refereeing in Northern NSW Football’s Premier Competitions.

“The year threw some challenges to all facets of football, however with the involvement of these extraordinary young people, we have continued to build both the capacity and quality of officiating throughout all three Premier Competitions throughout 2020.

“Congratulations to all award recipients and to all others who stepped up into the role of match official throughout 2020, not only in our leagues, but community competition across the region.”
