Welcome to the Referees section of our website, which aims to keep everyone with an interest in refereeing up to date with all of the latest news and information.

Andy Wilding, of Youth Referee Academy sponsors Globex Freight Management Ltd, said: "It has been our sincere pleasure to get involved with grassroots football with Suffolk FA, particularly the Suffolk FA Referee Academy and have already agreed to another 12 months sponsorship.

"We are sorry to learn that Mary Harmer, the Referee Development Office at Suffolk FA, has left her post recently but hopefully, a replacement RDO will be in situ soon. Whoever he or she may be, we very much look forward to meeting up with and supporting the new incumbent to discuss the continuity of the referee strategy going forwards, particularly the Youth Referee Academy at Ipswich Town Football Club and our sponsorship continuity."
