    True, just striving to be accurate, by the time you have multiple cards and / out lot's of stoppages whilst the card is in play it gets touch to be accurate, but I guess only our version of the truth counts!

    For a YC you have to get your card and pencil out, to note down the number . It's not extra work to also write down the time they are allowed back on. (handier than the time they went off). I think setting a separate alarm would be undue delay

    No, you do that anyway, I'm more thinking about the 'how long on the card sir?' calls, if you can have a quick glance at your watch / press a button you can give a quick accurate answer, else you potentially need to look at you score card and do some mental maths, not always appropriate thing to do. If I can answer a question quickly and easily then I want to.

    In my experience that friendly coach starts asking about the card about 4 minutes after the player goes to the bin.

    I picked up a used spintso for 50 quid on ebay. New battery and its good as new. It's so nice to use if it breaks I will pay full price for a new one!

    And you need to know time off and score at the time (at least you do in Scotland) so I get the name too and put it all on a page in my notebook that I record the score in.

    i have a Lorus watch which has a timer set for 40 mins and stop watch which I stop if required and it also has hands and I note the start time of each half in case I forget to restart the stopwatch.

    Anyone using the Spintso Pro?
    Thanks
    We could arrange a loan before the start of the season if you wished to give it a try. It took some getting used to.

    A tempted to resurrect my idea for a decent Apple Watch app for refs, if I find some of that mythical ‘spare time’ - what features would you want from your perfect ref watch?
