The Observers Role 


Becoming an FA registered observers will put you in a key role in the development of our referees by providing valuable feedback and guidance, particularly to young or inexperienced referees who seek promotion. 


The observer’s role involves attending matches and observing a referee’s performance, offering advice after the game and producing a written report for the County FA. 


Registered observers are paid for their time and the written report and if an observer performs well there are also opportunities for promotion as an observer. 


Observers help referees improve their performances which helps the game flow better which makes for an enjoyable experience for all, this is an integral part of our aim of Creating Memories Through Football. 


What is the need for a report? 

  • To help the referee improve his/her performance
  • To motivate the referee to adopt good advice
  • To raise standards of refereeing within the Amateur-FA
  • To provide critical information for the Amateur-FA
  • So the referee can manage their progress
