Ground Marshalls

 

Each home club must provide a minimum of 2 Ground Marshals.  Ground Marshals may not be younger than 16 and must be older than the age level of the league.

 

Ground Marshals must be in clearly identifiable uniforms must be visible at all times and must escort the official to and from the ground of play at half time and full time.

They are to wear the Yellow “Officials” jacket supplied by the club during the “GAME”

 

Ground Marshalls have the power to stop people from misbehaving and/or people who try to bring the game to disrepute.

 

Avoid: Not wearing officials’ jacket when dealing with the public

Backup Referee:

Linepeople:

 

If a FFV referee does not attend a "Home" match then it is the duty of the "HOME" team to supply a backup referee. Both team managers must consult and appoint a referee and 1 Linesperson from each club.

 

All clubs must fulfil all fixtures, regardless of whether or not a Match Official is present to take charge. Failure by any team or club to do so may result in that team is fined. Both team managers must complete the match records (formerly known team sheets); maintain these in an easily accessible location and preferably a safe location.

 

If the FFV referee turns up at any point of the game, the game must stop when the ball is out next and the referee will take over the game.

 

Please ensure that players without an FFV ID card do not participate in this match. The appointed match official must ensure that all players taking the field of play are wearing only equipment that is safe to themselves and any other person.

 

The appointed match official must ensure that the match kick offs at the scheduled kick off time and two equal halves are played. The appointed match official must ensure that the match is played according to the FIFA rules. Most importantly the match official and all responsible parties must ensure that the match is played in a safe manner and that player’s safety is always the most important aspect of the match.

 

Finally at the completion of the match it is the home clubs responsibility to ensure that both sets of match records are completed correctly and sent to the FFV. Failure to do so may result in additional fines.

 


  • If you were given the flags (Lines people) ...

 

  • Each club must appoint an assistant referee (lines people), who are required to identify themselves to the appointed match official prior to kick off. Preferably at least 10 min before kick off.

 

  • The major duties as an assistant referee are to indicate:

 

  • when the whole of the ball has passed out of the field of play
  • which side is entitled to a corner kick, goal kick or throw in
  • when a player may be penalised for being in an offside position
  • when a substitution is requested

 

  • As an assistant referee please also notify the referee if an accident has occurred behind play. Note as a club assistant referee the match official can not issue any penalty on your advice. However it is still good to notify them as it may prevent further incidents.

 

  • As an assistant referee please avoid coaching you players, getting involved with spectators and flagging for any infringements.

 

  • If your given the Marshalls Vest ...

 

  • Each Home Club must provide a minimum of 2 Ground Marshals.  Ground Marshals may not be younger than 16 and must be older than the age level of the league.

 

  • All ground marshals must identify themselves to the appointed match official prior to kick off. Preferably at least 10 min before kick off.

 

  • Ground Marshals must be in clearly identifiable uniforms, must be visible at all times and must escort the official to and from the ground of play at half time and full time.

 

  • Note that the match officials should not leave their dressing rooms to enter the filed of play or leave the field of play to return to their rooms, until identifiable Ground Marshals are present to escort them.

 

  • Note a failure to provide Ground Marshals may lead to a fine and more importantly a serious incident.

 

  • Ground marshals should also assist in ensuring that all spectators follow the FFV Codes of Behaviour and assist the match officials in any way possible.  Finally if the matter seems to be heading out of control it also very important that the relevant authorities are identified as soon as possible (i.e. police).
