With it being Valentines Day love is in the year and why not talk about Sin Bins or Temporary Dismissals as they are officially known as. 


From 2019/20 temporary dismissals will be compulsory in all football from step 7 and below (in Surrey this is the Surrey Elite League and below including youth football).

To prepare referees, officials and players for these changes Surrey FA will be undertaking a comprehensive training programme across the County.  Every league, referees association and club will be given the opportunity to attend workshops. 


I have attached  a jpeg so you can see the application of applying a temporary dismissal.

The society was established in 1925 to give an important voice piece for local referees who wanted to share experiences on and off the pitch.


Up to the modern day it still provides that valuable service for old and young alike. No matter what your level and experience is, there is always something you can learn from the Guildford Referees Society.


Remember, there are Referees out there and some you may come across on the park on any given weekend who do not belong to a Society. Ask them why? There are a lot more pros than cons in belonging to a Society and if nothing else, at least they are covered by the RA Insurance and in these days of Litigation it is well worth it.


We hope you enjoy the site and any comments you have will always be welcomed.


If you have any questions about the site the please email me.


Yours in football,
