Welcome to the home of Altrincham & District Referees
Altrincham & District Referees’ Society is the local branch of the Referees’ Association. Our members include referees serving all levels of the game, from junior grass roots matches through to FIFA international matches. This range of experience is of great benefit to all members of the society as we help each other to improve and develop.
We meet once per month, running an outdoor training & development session led by FA Referee Tutors, followed by an indoor session covering a variety of topics during the season. In between the two sessions we have time for food and networking! Our programme includes training from Premier League and Football League officials, and is designed to be of benefit to referees from all levels.
We also work closely with the Altrincham & District FA, and many of our members give their time to observing, mentoring and tutoring referees to aid their development.
A huge thank you to all the individuals and companies who donated prizes to our 2018 Christmas raffle, and of course to everyone who purchased tickets. The funds raised make a massive positive impact to the training and development opportunities for referees in the Altrincham & District area.
The draw was conducted during the December meeting and the full list of prizes and winners can be viewed by clicking here.
We are delighted to announce that our Young Referee of the Year for 2017/18 is Charlotte Phillips. Charlotte ended an outstanding season with appointments as Referee for a County Cup Final and 4th Official for a National Cup Final. In addition, Charlotte volunteered some of her time during the season to mentor trainee referees and serve on the ADRS Committee.
The trophy was presented to Charlotte by Premier League and FIFA Referee Michael Oliver.
Details have been announced for the next local New Referee Course to be run by Cheshire FA.
