    Shall I go first........................

    Firstly, welcome to the forum!

    Secondly, you need to join your local referees society and get on to their "development squad" and take it from there

    oh and thirdly, a slightly better use of the English language would help too

    Welcome.

    As with being successful at anything in life, becoming a successful referee - and being promoted to National Panel and even WR International Panel - will take goal setting, dedication, training, practice, humour, style and loads of hard work, honesty, self analysis, and the ability to pick yourself up when it all goes 'tits-up' and you have a bad day at the office.

    Nothing comes easy, especially in an 'elite' sport with a pyramid structure.

    Best of luck with your goals

    Wayne Barnes started at 15 and reached the National Panel at 21, so by all means harbour the ambition. However most referees never get that far, but still find it a very satisfying way to spend a Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. As already said, you need commitment and talent. Make sure you enjoy the journey regardless of how it ends.
