This section is devoted to referees and includes information about all aspects of officiating. There are currently in excess of 1000 qualified referees operating within Berks and Bucks, and it is our mission to ensure that every game is officiated by a qualified referee.

Referees registered with Berks and Bucks FA are under the guidance of the Referees Development Officer, with support from the County Referee Development Team.

Many of our referees started on courses organised by Berks and Bucks FA and many are also members of one of the ten Referees Societies in the 2 counties. In the drop-down menu you can find links to the Referees Association sites to found out more.

If you have just finished playing and you want to give something back to the game or if you wish to start a career in refereeing then contact or see the page entitled ‘Becoming a Referee’

Further refereeing related information for existing referees can be found in the drop-down menu, including details of the county’s Referee Development Team, in-service training programme, promotion details and links to local Referees Societies.
