Footballers in a friendly league fear they may have to hang up their boots after the SFA ordered its referees to stop officiating at their games. About 200 men, spread across 18 teams, play in the league which meets on a Saturday in Dundee's Riverside Park. Scottish Football Association refs have been overseeing the matches for the past 15 years but were told to stop. The SFA said its referees could only work with its official leagues or those affiliated with the association. If the Dundee league joins the Scottish Amateur Football Association (SAFA) then it would be allowed to continue using the SFA refs. However, league organisers said it would cost £4,000 to register all their teams - money that they cannot afford. The teams already donate to charity the cash raised in fines and money left over after buying trophies. In the past three years, they have given more than £1,500 to the Maggie's Centre and to help buy kits for local school children. Please help us FIGHT against this ruling by showing your support for Amateur football and football as a whole in Scotland by signing our petition!
