Young Referees Group
The Norfolk FA Young Referee Group is for all registered match officials in Norfolk, aged 14-21. The group is run by a Management Team made up of young referees, who are dedicated to help recruit, support and develop young match officials whilst having the responsibility of running development evenings and delivering opportunities for the young referees in the county.
The Norfolk FA Young Referee Group hold development evenings throughout each season and these will be run by the Management Team and guest speakers. Over the past few seasons, the group have had Norfolk's very own Premier League Match Officials Dan Robathan and Lee Betts deliver some fantastic presentations on various refereeing topics.
All referees in the Young Referee Group have the opportunity to be nominated for further development programmes such as the County CORE and National CORE which is the FA's Centre of Refereeing Excellence Programme. The group also work closely with Norfolk County RA, Local RA's and the National Young Referee Development Team.
Below are the Norfolk FA Match Officials who volunteer their time to be a part of the Young Referee Group Management Team and work alongside Football Services Apprentice, Harvey Newstead and Referee Development Officer, David Robinson.
