Kingston Referees' Society: About us

The Society was formed in 1928 to serve the referees within the local area; something we have continued to do ever since.  We are committed to develop our members to maximise their potential.

 

A number of our members have been successful at international level (Ray Lewis and Graham Barber as FIFA referees and Geof Pearson and David Crick as Assistant Referees) and many others at national level.  We are fortunate to have three Level 1 referees in membership at present (Carl Berry, Charles Breakspear and Darren Sheldrake).

 

Members have officiated in a number of national FA finals and we are proud to record their achievement.
