Barkston Ash Referee's Association Gold Award

We are delighted to confirm that Barkston Ash Referee's Association has been given official recognition of its achievements from The FA/RA by the award of QUEST Gold.

Barkston Ash Referee's Association are the only association in the country to have been recognised with this status.

Well done to all Barkston Ash Referee's Association for their hard work in achieving this award.



Barkston Ash RA has today been awarded with QUEST Silver. This award gives us National recognition for the great strides we have made as an association in the last 18 months. It demonstrates our commitment to developing all our members so that they have quality training and support to enable them to reach their full capacity as match officials in the National Game. We are one of only two associations in the country to have gained this status, with no association yet being awarded gold. The process is extremely rigorous; indeed it has taken many hours of work over a 6 month period, gathering and submitting evidence across a range of criteria.

The feedback from the audit team is that we have an 'excellent platform on which to achieve gold' and you can rest assured that we will be aiming for this in the near future.

We can all be be very proud of our part in gaining this award and flying the flag for Barkston Ash RA!
