We are a friendly bunch of referees with a range of experience from the local parks to international level. In meetings we concentrate almost exclusively on learning and development with a great deal of ‘active audience participation’.
The Society is affiliated to the national Referees’ Association and the Surrey County Referees’ Association. Membership fees never exceed a local match fee and there are many benefits of joining (see here for details).
We are extremely proud to have been awarded The Referees' Association BRONZE QUEST AWARD in 2016; this being the equivalent to FA Charter Standard for clubs proving our commitment to development and support of our members.
Link up with us on Facebook here.
We meet monthly during the football Season at Met Police Sports Club, Ember Lane, East Molesey KT8 0BT starting at 7.30pm. Click here for the location.
