It's a reffing disgrace. Shortage of soccer referees


A new website has launched to help find the next generation of men in black.

The (soUK) site is set to address some of the common problems and recruitment issues encountered by sports, and share examples of good practice in relation to the training and development of referees, umpires, stewards and judges.

SkillsActive, the sector skills council for sport and recreation, is working with soUK to help its development as the organisation responsible for representing and supporting officials across the UK.

SkillsActive has been established by employers in sport and recreation, health and fitness, playwork, the outdoors and the caravan industries.

Steve Mitchell, SkillsActive�s entry to the workforce manager, said: �We hope that the name becomes recognised as the voice of sports officials in the UK.�
