County Cup Final Officials Appointment

Referees for the Notts FA County Cup finals have been made

Last night at Notts FA HQ we held our annual referees county cup final evening for the 2018/19 season. 20 referees were selected to be a part of this year’s final appointments, chosen for their hard work throughout the season.

Nottinghamshire FA have in the past held over 20 cup finals but this year have cut this right back to only 5 county FA titles. The referees invited to the event recognised this and felt ‘it’s a great honour to be recognised. Finals are something as a referee you strive for’.

Once the appointments had been made a quiz got the referees bonding, photos and interviews were underway and the evening was wrapped up with a fish and chip supper.


We once again would like to congratulate all referees on their appointments for the county FA finals and look forward to seeing them in action in the next month.
