Match officials at the 2023-24 Senior Challenge Cup final

County Cup Finals - Match Officials Appointments

Gloucestershire FA would like to congratulate all of our match officials and hope that they all enjoyed their experience.

Following the completion of Gloucestershire FA’s County Cup finals for the 2023/24 season, now is a great time to congratulate all of the match officials who were involved in this season’s finals.

The appointment of each match official is a sign of their dedication, hard work and commitment to grassroots football throughout the season. Each local league in Gloucestershire was asked to provide the marks awarded to the referees by the club that they have refereed. As well as club marks, we look at referees who have been part of the Referee Progression Pathway for the season as well as others who have also supported our County Cup competitions throughout the season.
