BUCS Fixtures In Need Of Stand-In Refs In Week Five

We’ll see an absolutely stacked slate of fixtures taking place this weekend, with both a packed schedule of BUCS games as well as the opening weekend of the Sapphire Series this Saturday. 

This extreme demand has led to a BAFRA being unable to provide crews to a number of BUCS contests this weekend.

As such, if you’re at least a Qualified Level One BAFCA Coach with some time on your hands this Sunday, some of these teams may be eager to hear from you! This includes our Division Two Game of the Week, as the 1-0 Royal Holloway Bears host the 2-1 KCL Regents!

Many teams will be willing to cover expenses/pay for your time. If you’re able to assist, please get in touch with the contacts noted below:

If any of the teams wish to correct any of the below information, please get in touch via our Facebook page and we shall amend accordingly.
