Cumberland Referee

Scott Taylor, Cumberland FA Referee Development Officer commentedThese promotions are recognition of the individual hard work and commitment given by each match official this season to the grassroots game in Cumberland.”

With five Referees beginning the season as Under 18s and all officials under the age of 26, this highlights the continuing development of the young referee workforce and the support through the Cumberland FA County CORE programme which was recently re-launched as a Cumberland FA and FA jointly funded project. 

Cumberland FA would like to congratulate the promoted match officials and wish them all the best next season.
