Waste of a referee!

2 games cancelled in the Falmouth/Helston league today including our St Agnes reserves away v Mawgan both because of no referee available. There seems to be an ongoing problem - is it a lack of referees full stop and do we need to encourage more or is there something else going on that so many games are cancelled?

Could have been another one cancelled in the FHFL had it not been for the away team to agree to allow the home teams manager to ref the match, something that rightly or wrongly is happening more and more. Apparently the home teams referee had been "poached" by the FA along with another 3 FHFL allocated refs to ref a 5-a-side tournament in Torpoint / Torquay. The reply from the refs appointment officer was that there were NO available refs to cover these games?

that tornenemnt was in torbay but i never had a booked match that week(week off) and 1 referee dosn't do the FHL anyway (never put his name down) so there were at least 2 who cancelled.

But i no what anita is saying i know another referee who put his name down to do games but isn't getting picked. In some cases yeah there is a shortage of referees as if a referee can't do a game there might not be any1 else to take his place. And in some cases they just aint being used.
