U9–U16 Ground Marshals
Duties and Responsibilities
- Make yourself known to the referees and assist them with anything they might need. Ensure that coaches, managers and spectators do not discuss the game with the referees for any reason. If they have concerns, they must only speak to the Ground Marshal who can choose whether any further action is required. Keep in mind that the referees are often young players from the club and need our full support.
- Whilst carrying out the duties as a Ground Marshal you must ensure that all spectators are well behaved and observe the code of conduct. Please avoid the use of derogatory language and be consistent, objective and courteous in dealing with any unruliness. Please ensure that you report any incidents to a member of the Junior Committee.
- Where safety zones or technical areas are marked, please ensure that only coaches and players are in this zone at any time. This is for the safety of the players.
- The Ground Marshal will be responsible for helping to put the goals back up against the fence, co-ordinating a cleanup of the pitch areas and returning the marshal's box to the canteen or a committee member in charge once the last game is finished.
