West Suffolk-based officials dominate in increase of 59 per cent in county's grassroots referees receiving promotion
More than one in three Suffolk officials who have either received promotion or a nomination to The FA are from west Suffolk.
The referees, including 10 who reside in west Suffolk, have received the good news ahead of next season which is a result of their on-field performances, measured by both referee observations and marks submitted by clubs.
Compared to last season, Suffolk football has seen an increase of 59 per cent in the total number of grassroots referees receiving an elevation to the next level.
Included in this group are Level 7 to 6, Level 6 to 5 (referee for Step 7 and below) and Level 5 to 4 (referee Steps 5&6 and assistant for Steps 3&4) nominations as well as Suffolk’s first ever nomination solely within the Women’s pathway from Level 3W to 2W.
