On the domestic Association front, throughout this closed season period, George MacDonald, continues to put us through our paces at our weekly physical training sessions every Tuesday evening. The venue is at the Michael Woods Sports & Leisure Centre in Glenrothes, the warm up starts on the track at 7.15pm sharp. Come along and meet up with your fellow Referees and improve and maintain your fitness level. Please remember to bring appropriate footwear for use on the track and the grass pitch.
Just a reminder that training is cancelled on Tuesday 26 June due to the Social Event of our end of season meal evening.
I wish all of you the very enjoyable rest period in the closed season and hope you have an enjoyable summer. I look forward to seeing you at training and at our first meeting in August when it all begins again..
