    Ray I know that you adopted a similar policy to me in recruiting mainly competent referees for EYC. As a matter
    of interest how many black cards were issued over the years at this...

    I agree with this,and I made a comparison between how you should handle incidents at a junior [U20] and senior
    event and one involving minors.

    Competent referees should be able to handle the...

    No it is not worrying, because it has been extremely rare that we had an incident which justified a black card sanction. Our tournaments were run efficiently, because we recruited competent and good...

    Cesh

    If you read the section 'About LPJS' on their website it states clearly that the tournament series covers ages 7-17.

    Cesh

    As I said already final decisions need to be taken by parents or guardians. The coach should of course be consulted but is not the final arbiter.

    Indeed they...
