Development – Cynnydd

Young referees looking to progress in the game will no doubts make their way through the youth and amateur ranks before progressing onto Junior football and, potentially, the senior leagues.

To help our up-and-coming younger referees, Cardiff Referees’ Society operates a Youth Development Program. This involves working with Cardiff City Academy from Under 12s right through to Under 17s at Treforest. It is an ideal platform for young referees to develop with opportunities to referee the top youngsters in Wales and from other Premier League teams.

The development program is co-ordinated by the Chairman Rob Clarke. Any member wishing to find out more can email Rob at
