The shortage of local referees is reaching crisis point, according to the area’s top whistleblower who said the time has never been better to take up officiating.
 
As the shortfall threatens to play havoc on the coming season’s fixtures, referees aged in their 60’s are even being called upon to ensure matches are not cancelled.
 
But Charlie Emberton, Central Wales Referees Officer, believes that with the chance to fast track through to officiate in big European matches, the incentives have never been better.
 
“You only have to look at Huw Jones from Llanrhaeadr who has made the transition from local football to officiating at European games in such a short time,” said Emberton. “He is a shining example of what can be achieved. We have also succeeded in welcoming female referees to local football who are doing a fantastic job too.
 
“I would say we are a minimum of 12 referees short this season. I urge anyone that is interested to get in touch because your local football needs you.”
 
Referees only require six two-hour sessions to become qualified and courses are arranged locally. Anyone interested should contact Charlie direct on 01686 668725 or 07719723212.
