Dear League Secretaries

It is with concern that I write to you to ask for your support in ensuring that Refereeā€™s who have a current suspension from football are not refereeing in your league fixtures.

This email refers specifically to a referee by the name of GRAHAM SPEED, who was issued with a 10 year suspension from football activity on 03/02/2020. We have been informed that Graham is still offering his refereeing services to teams, commonly those who post on social media that they are looking for a referee.

Please can you circulate this information to your clubs, and your appointment officers, who will have received an updated list of registered referees from CCFA recently. If in doubt, clubs should check that referees are registered with the league appointment officer and if any doubt still remains, they should contact our Referee Development Officer Ed Duckworth on

Best wishes
