The Essex FA have confirmed the weekend of March 29-30 as the ‘reFspect Awareness Weekend’.

The ‘Don’t X The Line’ campaign stage their annual initiative aimed at improving the behaviour of parents and spectators.

Don’t X The Line are working with The Football Association, the Professional Game Match Officials and other professional bodies to help raise awareness and eliminate the problems experienced by referees at all levels of the game of football, in particular at grassroots level.

By reducing the number of incidents of poor touchline behaviour, they aim to maintain the current number of referees and help to attract many more new ones to the beautiful game.

All football clubs are invited to raise awareness of ‘reFspect’ by signing up to support the weekend. This can be done online at www.dontxtheline.com or by calling 07951 442480.
