Referees are often referred to as the 'third team' on the pitch and deserve just as much recognition as anyone else.
The Amateur FA know the hard work our officials put in to improve themselves and learn, so wanted to recognise this.
We would like to thank all Amateur FA referees for their efforts, commitment and time during the 20/21 season. However, the following referees have stood out and deserve their awards.
Referee of the Year - Daniel Smith
Assistant Referee of the Year - Tony Hemmings
Young Referee of the Year - Oliver Bierman
Best New Referee - Mark Baxter
We would like to congratulate Daniel, Tony, Mark and Oliver on the achievement.
We wish all our referees a good summer and look forward to working with them next season.
