Southampton Referee Fitness Training Update Thursday 12th April 2018

Dear Colleagues,
Wide Lane is still very wet and a number of the participants also have games, therefore our training session has been cancelled. There will no run at Magpie Lane either. Training on Thursday 19th April is also cancelled due to SRA holding their monthly meeting at St. Mary's Stadium. Steve Saunders has offered to organise a 3k run on that evening, meeting up in the car park in Magpie Lane, Eastleigh. Be ready for a 6-00pm start! Please contact Steve direct if you want to participate so he knows who will be attending.
Mike Misselbrook & Steve Saunders

Respect Wars: A New Hope

Last year Southampton RA visited a local team at their training evening, as a result of a positive conversation after a game regards Dissent. The club was heading towards bigger & bigger disciplinary sanctions and it threatened their Chartered Club status. Over a pint, we discussed how best to converse with a Referee and what constituted poor form. Well, this weekend, we learnt that after that intervention, the team's disciplinary record for Dissent improved massively! So if any of you had remarks along the lines of "Oh Fiddlesticks" or "You Muddy Funster" or "Are You Sure About that one Ref?", You Are Welcome, all part of the service!
