Confirming the final promotion achievements of the season, Berks & Bucks FA, Referee Development Officer, Sam Myatt, said: “I want to start by saying congratulations to all of our officials who have received positive news over the last few weeks. This news marks the end of what has been an incredibly tough season and it is great to see so many officials being rewarded for their efforts on the pitch.
“As we come the end of the new Progression Pathway, we have seen a massive increase in the number of candidates applying to join the pathway and look forward to seeing that continue to grow as we keep pushing all referees who are keen to progress.
“I also want to say a big thank you to our Promotion Co-Ordinators who have worked tirelessly throughout the season, dealing with an increased number of candidates. Without them, none of this would not have been possible.”
Applications for the 2023-24 Progression Pathway are open alongside Referee Registration from the 1st June and match officials can register their interest here.
