    Hi Vovonne - welcome to the forums, and more broadly, to the refereeing family! :D As I was reading your story, the first thought that occurred to me was "I wonder if the home team lost?", and sure...

    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2019-20

    After the charity match finished in an honourable draw and £2,500 raised, this weekend is the annual act of tomfoolery that is our Overs/Unders match. Always a chuckle!

    For those looking for a more precise timestamp, start watching from 1:20 on the youtube timer.

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    So very much this. In spades.

    Getting the teams out on time is a small, early way of reinforcing your image of being in control. Not bossy, not curt - but also not someone they can push around.

    Re: Half Time

    So if a defender does delay from a KO/restart, and...
