27 New Referees in Altrincham

We’re delighted that the Altrincham & District FA have 27 newly qualified football referees following completion of their latest course at Sale United FC, led by Stuart Kay. After attending a 3 day course in November and passing an exam on the Laws of the Game, the trainee referees have been refereeing in the Timperley & District Junior Football League under the watchful eye of mentors. Having successfully completed a number of matches, they have now been signed off as FA Qualified Referees.

We look forward to the new referees joining the society next season.

As I’m sure many of you have seen from driving past, Altrincham FC has a big building project going on right in the heart of the ground. For those that don’t know what the project is, they’re building a brand new community sports hall and you can find plenty more information over at the official website.

As the building project nears completion, to help raise final funds required, Altrincham FC are running an auction and there are many fantastic prizes to be had. Maybe you’d like a Premiership Ref’s shirt signed by all the current Premiership referees? How about a hospitality match day package Altrincham FC or Manchester United?

The full auction list and bidding details can be found here: Altrincham FC CSH Fund Raising Auction and closing date for bids is Friday 14th November 2014.

Welcome to the new Altrincham & District Referees Website

After a couple of months work we’ve finally got to a point where we can make it available for all to use.

It will continue to evolve and grow over the coming season, as we hope to turn it into a hub of training resources and other useful information for referees in the area.

If you have any feedback please feel free to send us a tweet @altrinchamrefs, write on our new Facebook Page, or use the contact form on this site.
