Information for Clubs

The Society provides referees to clubs, schools and colleges throughout Greater Birmingham, Herefordshire, Shropshire, and Worcestershire.

A small registration fee is payable to put clubs onto the WhosTheRef (WTR) appointments system – each season – and then a further fee is payable per game which includes the referee’s travelling expenses.

North Midlands Referee Shirts for 2018/19

NMSRFR have had some new shirt designs created by GILBERT Rugby for the 2018/19 season. The traditional white/green/black shirt will remain the primary shirt given to new referees, but there are some additional colours which have had positive feedback from those members who have seen them.

Probate Solicitors (PSL) have kindly offered sponsorship towards the shirts which we expect will reduce the cost per shirt to around £29/£30 (approx 20% off).

Members who wish to order a shirt are requested to indicate their interest (based on a price of £30) using the form at this link below:

The shirts will be sublimated which makes them slightly lighter and ‘smoother’ than the existing ones, and the sizing is very similar but will go down to XXS and up to 3XL.

Delivery is about 5/6 weeks and the intention is to submit an order by end of June.

As well as the formal voting around election of officers, there was much discussion around members’ views on the way forward.
