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

It’s a stacked slate of fixtures in the Uniball game this weekend, with all conferences in action across the three tiers!

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!

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.
