Reporting Misconduct

Whenever a referee cautions or dismisses a player from the field of play, or is reporting other forms of misconduct, he/she shall prepare a report of the incident or incidents.

These reports must be received by the County FA within two days of the match (Sunday not included).   

There has been considerable change in the manner in which match officials can report misconduct on the field of play, and now all misconduct is reported online through the Whole Game System.
