Social Events

Social events play a huge role in the Ayrshire Referees Association. They bring together referees of all levels and allow us to socialise away from the football field over the course of the season.

The Ayrshire Referees Association has a Social Committee made up of the Social Committee chair and a maximum of 5 others. These members are elected annually. As well as being in charge of Social Business, the Social Chair also has a place on the Association's Council.


This year the social chair is Liam Gallagher
