To avoid problems the Referee decides to wear a Blue jersey, while allowing the ARs to wear their Gold shirts. Is this acceptable and something the Referee should do? A. Yes B. No BT9 Proper Uniforms
An adult AR comes to a match wearing black ankle socks, green shoes and long shorts hanging below the knee.

B. False BT10 Referee Systems Three adults have been assigned to a officiate a U14 boys game using the diagonal system.

In the 35th minute of the game D6 grabs A7s shirt just enough to knock him off the ball. The referee blows his whistle to stop play and awards a DFK to A7 for the holding foul committed by D6. Even though this is the first foul called by the referee against D6 in the game, the referee should still issue a caution to D6 for persistent infringement. A. TRUE B. FALSE
