Regional Training Day Sunday 1 June

Messsage from Association Manager Martin Clark. I am aware that the recent message sent direct from the SFA inviting all referees to the Regional Training Day clashes (yet again) with the Dunbar Finals of the SERYFA.

Clearly this may have resulted in some referees who officiate in these leagues considering attending the training day. However, whilst I obviously acknowledge that the training day is very interesting and informative etc, I wish to advise that the Finals are much more important and any referee who officiates in these leagues and who receives an appointment is not expected to attend the training day.

I can only hope that in future years such training days will not be arranged so to coincide with the finals.

I wish to suggest that you should make yourself available to the league secretary now, irrespective of being selected for the finals or not, and in this respect I again stress, this is something you should do sooner than later.

Only if not selected by the league secretary, for whatever reason, and you can then attend the training day, please advise me as soon as you are in position to do so and I will arrange for you to be accommodated.

If anyone wishes to raise any questions regarding this matter please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail.
