No Allocated Referee

The SSFRA finalises referees appointments on Friday afternoons. Sometimes there will be no referee allocated to your game.

Our Referee Coordinator, Tom Riordan, will do his best to arrange a club referee for your game. Tom will text your team’s manager on a Friday night for Saturday games & Saturday for Sunday games, if your team does not have a referee (SSFRA or Club ref) for your home game, otherwise you or your opposition will need to organise someone to referee the game.

SSFRA Referee Does Not Show Up For Game

If a referee is not able to ref your home game eg sick or injured, they must contact GUFC to let us know … Tom will then do his best to have a club referee arranged for your game.

If you are at your home game, and no referee shows, please contact Gymea Bay Ground Control (Ph: 9525 1516) and we will try to organise a club referee.

Otherwise you, or your opposition, will need to organise someone to referee the game. Also if you do have to organise a referee for your game, they will be paid. Ask them to email their:

– Name
– Account Name
– BSB; and
– Account Number


Please note it is up to both teams to help organise a referee and if there is no person willing to referee then it will be taken as a forfeit by both teams (Rule 30.F.(d)).

We are always looking for extra club referees for games at our home fields. If any member of your team or friends or family are interested in refereeing please ask them to contact Tom at Club referees are PAID for each home game they referee.
