Review to see local refs go under the microscope
NORTHERN NSW Football is set to undertake a comprehensive review of refereeing across all of Northern NSW this year.
The review will see current practices, administration and development of match officials go under the microscope.
The governing body's board of directors put forward the resolution at its last meeting with the aim of restructuring the current system.
Leading the review will be the newly elected steering committee made up of delegates from around NNSWF's zones.
NNSWF Community Football Manager and secretary of the steering committee Peter Haynes believes the upcoming review of officiating is vital to the progress of match officiating within Northern NSW.
"Refereeing is a vital aspect of football in Northern NSW. Haynes said.
"The steering committee review aims to make the officiating process as efficient as possible.
"The review will be conducted over a twelve month period with a view to ensure the structure of refereeing is appropriate.
"We want to provide a positive experience for match officials and en effective pathway for upcoming match officials."
