As previously discussed at delegate meetings, we are experiencing a shortage of match officials which is currently a nationwide problem experienced by all leagues. Again, I must highlight the importance of putting forward members from your clubs to undergo referee training so that we can ensure full fixture schedules are maintained. The NT&DL will contribute to the financial cost of undergoing training.
I would also like to remind clubs of the new payment structures for match officials. €70 for Premier League games/competitions and €60 for all other games. Please ensure match cards are properly filled out.
Best wishes for the upcoming season to all teams and I look forward to working with you.
Secretary – NT&DL
