Re: Referee designation (commonly in printed papers)

I think sometimes the county FA was used in addition to specific clubs. In Cambuslang's two league seasons there are references to referees from Edinburgh and Dunbartonshire as well as from clubs. Their game away to Dumbarton on 26/3/1892 was refereed by a Mr McHardy, who was designated as ex-St Mi...

Referee designation (commonly in printed papers)

In newspapers of the past the referee's name would appear at the end of the match report. The convention was usually to have, in brackets after the referee's name, either the team he was associated with or the place he came from. Is/was there an official reason (required by the League rules) for thi...
