OUR REFEREES

LAYFC are looking an increasing the number of referees employed by the club to oversee games from Under 7s to Under 18s. Being a referee can be a rewarding and challenging role that has shown to greatly develop decision-making and assertiveness.

If you would like to become a qualified referee, you need to take part in a Basic Referees Course with Somerset Football Association. The course is typically around £100 which will quickly been recovered by the match fee you'll receive. The club will guarantee to meet the minimum number of matches required and hopefully many more in years to come.

Whilst completing the course we are happy for you to referee our games at a lower rate shown in brackets for non-qualified referees. Here are the qualified fees paid:

 

U7 & U8                                  £15  (£10)

U9 & U10                           £17.50  (£10)

U11 & U12                              £20 (£15)

U13 & U14                              £25 (£15)

U15 & U16                              £40 (£20) 

 

U17 to U18                             £45 (£20)


To become a referee you must be at least 14 years old and a resident of England.

GROUND MAINTENANCE

LAYFC are looking at some helpers to look after the pitches and goals on a regular basis.

The role would typically mean walking the pitches look for any degradation such a holes dug by animals; then filling them in with soil. Or using a pitch fork and adding grass seeds to the goal areas. Or repairing nets with cable ties or bungee chords etc. We have the equipment stored in our sheds.

Finally, reporting to the Exec if goals need replacing etc.

We see this role as good pocket money for the older children and will pay £20 per session every couple of weeks.

Hopefully we can have a team of helpers. Please contact us if interested.

 

ONLINE SHOP MANAGER

LAYFC are looking at some helpers to manage our online store and  increase recycling of secondhand kit and football boots. 

We think this would be great experience for a young person to learn online store skills, customer management and organisational skills plus some ingenuity.

The role would typically mean helping market the store to our parents, add items to the online store and help arrange pickup for purchased products. Note we expect the parents to hold on to the items and our shop will just be the facilitation.

We may collect some items at our serving shed at Beckford in the future.

Hopefully we can have a team of helpers. Please contact us if interested.
