BUDDING Borders referees are being given the chance to earn their whistle this month.
The Scottish Football Association refereeing course begins on Sunday, October 28 at Yarrow Park, Selkirk.
The programme is free of charge and runs from 10am to 4pm each Sunday for five weeks.
The need for more referees was highlighted by the postponement of Selkirk Victoria versus Gala Hotspur in the Border Amateur League last month, when there was no spare official to take over after the original appointment pulled out.
