    Sunday league story here
    I attended a game between the Nine Giants pub
    and some side I'm sure was from somewhere in the vallies many years ago
    My brother younger brother played for the nine giants So I tagged along to watch
    they did not have a ref for the game or he did not turn up or something
    Muggings here was press ganged into reffing
    (No linos) so I unwillingly reffed the game
    I gave a penalty to the other side

    The nine giants won by a silly amount 7-2 or something
    But I came away unscathed :thumbup:


    And i only tagged along just incase a few didn't turn up or couldn't turn up and I'd get a game as the
    midfield general :hehe:

    I even got em to call me sir :hehe:
    I did not have the power or authority to brandish cards though

    I think now I have the right to critique reffereeing
    performances due to me being in the trenches of reffereeing
    it's a piece of piss :hehe:

    I've watched a lot of parks football and it always amazes me that when someone on the sideline unwillingly gets coaxed into being ref or more often lino they'll do the best job they can, but the players will still give them massive amounts of shit over decisions as if the guy was reffing the Champions League final and pocketing millions for it despite all the players having literally just seen the guy getting harassed into reluctantly officiating.

    I've seen a volunteer linesman pick up the flag, make his very first call, get shit off the players, put the flag down immediately and walk back to his mates on the halfway line to continue as spectator only.

    I remember running the line for my team (a sub on either side did it) and getting shit off my centre back for not raising the flag for an opposition player clearly onside.

    He said something like you give them offside as they'll do the same to us (they didn't).

    What's the point in even playing if you're gonna be a total dick given half the chance? I'm hardly a Corinthian but there's no point blatantly cheating for an absolute nothing game between two nothing teams.

    Why anyone would want to ref is beyond me,sadly because of funds even at the 5/6 tier of Welsh football there are no linesman yet knowing this managers and players give the ref constant grief for in the main offside decisions not ever stopping to realise that the poor old ref is no fitter than the players on the park, yet give him abuse for not being up with play when someone “gives it leather” and lumps the ball 50 yards up the pitch to some forward who may or not be offside,makes me smile to be honest:hehe:

    Many years ago we had a side comprised of staff from the Angel Hotel and played on Pontcanna Fields on a Sunday afternoon. We were okay ish but one time played a side who had played in the morning league (Lazarou) and been over the Halfway and were well pissed. They also only had 8 players. We got stuffed, very embarrassing and was the beginning of the end. :oocc:

    When I was in Uni at Loughborough there was a really competitive inter Hall competition.
    Our side for example had a Button Albion player and a couple of Inter Cardiff youth lads playing and we only had about 150 to choose from.

    Anyway, the captain of each team had to ref the other games.

    It was a pain in the arse, no linesmen and an artificial pitch, went end to end in seconds with all those fast kids playing.

    Anyway 1 game I must have missed loads and just wanted to fuck off and have a pint, when some lad started moaning at me.

    My reaction was ‘I really don’t give a shit who wins and I don’t really want to be here. I might be shit but it’s the same for both sides. And don’t forget, you are playing my side next week and I’m going to kick the crap out of you if you don’t shut up’

    Easier to say in a student game than it was in the Rhymney Valley League :hehe:

    The standard up there was unreal.
    The Uni first team played against all the top Midlands youth sides, Villa, Wolves, Forest, Leicester etc and regularly beat them.

    I arranged a friendly for our hall side against Loughborough Town who I also played for, for a bit and were at about level 9 or 10 in the English pyramid. We played at grounds with stands, crowds, programmes etc, about level with the lower divisions of the Welsh League.
    The Hall team beat them 3-1 !

    I think Tony Daley played the one time for Villas kids against us ( one with the dreadlocks) can’t remember any of the others. He was outstanding.

    I didn’t play, mind, but watched he was superb.

    I did go to the trials for the Uni team, but got destroyed ( I blamed my glandular Fever) by a lad who was on West Ham’s books.

    Hence why I ended up playing for the Halls side and Town team.

    And yeah I played as a striker until I went to Uni and realised I was actually not that good and settled back at centre half for the next 15 years.

    So many friends made, so much fun.

    Remember when QPR got knocked out of the fa cup by Vauxhall motors, the next time we played them we sang "Lost to a garage, you fucking lost to a garage"
