As Season 2014-15 draws to a close I'm delighted to be able to welcome Stuart Macaulay as the new Assistant Association Manager. I'm sure all members will join me in congratulating Stuart on this appointment and it is a real boost for the Association that we will continue to benefit from Stuart's experience and knowledge. It was a double celebration for Stuart as he has also been appointed as an Assistant Referee Observer.
There was further good news for the Fife Association from the recent Scottish FA Referee Committee Grading Meeting. Congratulations to the Referees below who have received a promotion,
Jordan Stokoe - Category 3 SAR Development
Lorraine Clark & Scott Lambie - Category 2

A number of our members received prestigious appointments to cup finals. Details of these are highlighted in the Newsletter that has recently been sent to you. Well done to all those who received these appointments. Particular congratulations to Jordan Stokoe who officiated as Assistant Referee in the Scottish Junior Cup Final held at Rugby Park, Kilmarnock
Finally, the April Introductory Course saw another 16 successfully pass the new electronic exam. To all those new members, welcome to the Association, please get involved in training and meetings and good luck in your new refereeing careers!
Enjoy the close season!
