Since September this season, Match Officials have been able to submit Respect Marks for the players, coaches, and spectators of the teams they have been officiating. This has allowed us to more accurately track behaviour in football within our area, and recognise those teams who show good conduct on and off the pitch on a match day.
Despite the cold weather limiting football over December and January, perfect Respect & Reward scores for a teams’ players, coaches, and spectators, was achieved 88 times. Some teams achieved this on more than one occasion so are listed twice.
Teams who have been scored more than once this season, and have an average score of 10 out of 10 across players, coaches, and spectators, were entered into the first Prize Draw of the season. These teams are:
Ponteland United Juniors Phoenix U18s
Morpeth Dunton Rangers
Whitley Bay SC U12 Whites
Whitley Bay SC U15 Girls Lionesses
Whitley Bay SC U15 Girls Tigers
Willington Quay Saints U12 Tiempo
Bedlington Terriers Juniors U11 Locos
Tynemouth United U14 Blues
Newcastle East End Women
Wideopen U9 Rockets
Each of these teams will be receiving a £50 Kitlocker Voucher.
The scheme also rewards referees. Every time a referee submits their Respect Marks for a game they have officiated, they are given an entry into the referees Prize Draw. The Twenty-Five referees below have each won a £25 Kitlocker Voucher:
The scheme will continue throughout 2022/23 Season with more teams and referees to be rewarded in May.
