Last weekend was ref appreciation week and we caught some teams saying 'thanks ref'!

One of Villa FC's up and coming referees, Dominic Pearce, 13, was shown appreciation by Gr10 Wallabies player Ari Leland. Dominic, along with some other young Villa FC players, does a fantastic job refereeing our Gr10/11 MiniRoos games.

Last weekend our Gr12/2nd team did not have an allocated ref, so club volunteer Rick Flanagan put up his hand to help. After the game both teams showed their appreciation to Rick for helping out with three cheers (see below).

FFNC referee numbers have dropped by more than half in recent times and there are many games each weekend with no referees because of the shortage. Sadly the main reason given for referees dropping out is abuse from the sideline.

In an effort to turn this around we are asking ALL players, parents and supporters to appreciate the few referees we have left and refrain from giving them advice from the sideline.

See our Codes of Behaviour for our clubs expectations with regards to Referee Abuse.
