The registration for season 2021/2022 is now due and the registration form can be accessed by clinking below.

The National Referee Committee recognise that referees had little opportunity to officiate due to the cessation of football for a large part of season 2020/21 and have decided that the annual registration fee will not apply for Season 2021/22.

Please note that although no fee is required you must still register in order to officiate in Season 2021/22.
