A little bit about ourselves
Port Talbot Referees Society was founded in 1952. We are members of the Referees Association of Wales which serves to promote the Laws and Spirit of Association Football and to raise the quality, status and benefits of refereeing.
Our members officiate in leagues across Wales – from the Welsh Premier League and Welsh Football League to local league football, youth, juniors, girls and FAW Academy football.
We celebrated our first ever development day in 2017 to help train and improve our referees with English Premier League Referee Roger East and our own FIFA Assistant Referee Ian Bird as guest speakers. We have continued to utilise top quality guest speakers such as English Premier League Assistant Referee Derek Eaton since the first event.
Our society meetings are held monthly at the Seaside Social and Labour Club in Dalton Road, Port Talbot.
