About Sedgefield LRA

Sedgefield RA is one of the best County RA's in the North East, with a wealth of experience from our members at all levels of football.

There are many benefits to joining Sedgefield RA, these include:

  • Support and Advice - our experienced members are always on the end of the phone or computer to offer you help and guidance. With opportunities to be mentored by one of our senior colleagues throughout your refereeing career.
  • Insurance - this includes during the match and travelling to and from games, equipment theft as well as accident/injury cover.
  • Benevolent Fund - access to funds, should a member fall upon hard times.
  • Physiotherapy - access to treatment during times of injury (optional).
We endeavour to get a top class guest speaker at every meeting. Recent speakers have included: Brian Parry (ex Football League Assistant Referee and Observer), Gary Beswick (Select Group Assistant Referee), Barry Sygmuta (ex Select Group Assistant Referee), David Webb (Football League Referee), Geoff Eltringham (Football League Referee), Jeff Russell (Durham FA RDO) and Alan Wilkie (ex Premier League Referee and Observer).
