Yellow Armband Respect Initiative for Young Referees
Wednesday 25 September 2019 16:58 by Jon Trenwith
The Liverpool County FA have launched a yellow armband respect initiative for young referees under the age of 18.
This will see young match officials wearing a yellow armband to remind everyone that they are still subject to children’s safeguarding legislation. They should therefore be protected, encouraged and treated with respect.
If any of our referees receive abuse of any kind, the matter will be reported to the County FA and the punishment handed out will be double the normal punishment if a young referee is involved.
For more information about this initiative, please visit the Liverpool County FA website.
