Kiveton Park FC Referees

Referees are an intrinsic part of the game.

With the growth and popularity of football particularly for women and children, the demand for match officials is increasing.

We are always on the lookout for referees in the local area for matches at weekends and the various events that we host throughout the year.

All Junior referees must hold a current League Referee ID Card.

If you are interested in becoming a referee or already have valid qualifications and would like to offer your services please get in touch :

Reminder of the Referee Process for all Junior teams :

The home team makes contact with the away team 5 clear days before the fixture. During that contact the home teams informs the away team of:

  • Venue & directions
  • Kick off time
  • Kit colours
  • Referee

If the home team does not have a ref appointed who is on the league list they MUST inform their opponents. The opponents can then see if they can find a ref to do the fixture.

If the home does have a referee on the League list for the fixture, they need to make sure the referee is appointed on the Full Time system. This can be done by emailing

If teams do not have a referee they can email by 8pm on the Monday before the fixture. This means that the details of the fixture are emailed out to all League referees, and they will respond to clubs directly if they want to take the fixture. This helps refs as they only get one email and not many calls and emails.

If both teams cannot find a referee with a League ID card then they must agree on a stand in official.

A stand in official CANNOT referee on a regular basis
