Two U16 D4 matches, not too interesting but an interesting comment from a coach

The U16 Girls match was not challenging at all.

Robert K and Hudson did well on assistance. Gave Robert some feedback helping him to get to the next referee level.

The coaches in the first half had a difficult time staying in the technical area – obviously not enforced with the previous referees.

The touch line dissent had me go over and address the coaches directly using my favourite line,  “You are here for instruction, I don’t need your help”. The caution before half time for a keeper delay of game was new to them also.

In the second half, the AR reported to me after the game, the coaches started watching me. They were not used to my gestures to the ARs. I was touched that they spent the second half observing referees.
