Promotion Interviews 2021
« on: Thu 27 May 2021 16:14 »
I have heard that the invitations are out for the promotion interviews.

I have also heard two names of assistant referees who have them (NL to SG2AR) but just wondering if these have been officially released yet, if if they ever do get formally released?

Are promotion interviews in place all the way up to SG1?

What, would anyone know, is usually asked during these interviews? I would have thought on pitch performance was really all they needed to know although I suppose with it being a job now at SG1 and SG2 there's a lot more to it.

Test on LoTG, questions relating to match situations "what happens if...", questions relating to competition rules, emphasis id imagine on dealing with abuse from crowds etc
Situations to make you think, show clarity under pressure, man management skills etc
Whilst on field performance is a high priority these other things are important.
I am reasonably sure ARs from NL to FL dont have interviews, im not sure they do from FL to SG2 unless this has changed

Many thanks RCG, makes a lot of sense.

No interviews for National League assistants being promoted to the EFL, but they do for EFL to SG2.

And also presentations by the candidates to the interviewing panel demonstrating their abilities, using video clips, etc.  Role playing scenarios.  It is what you would expect of a job interview for a senior position.

Iím not sure how accurate this is but I have heard that the referees invited to interview to move to SG1 are Harrington, Gillett, Brooks, Stroud and Salisbury

FL to SG2 are Hicks, Madley, Busby, Drysdale, Bramall and Coy

FL AR to SG2 I have only heard Hunt and Liddle (Iím sure there are more)

Those names would certainly fit the play off appointments. If true, Iíd be very surprised if Stroud is promoted. Whilst not wanting to be ageist, promoting him at 51 is not going to be a long term vision for the future of refereeing!

Even though Mason is the only ref leaving the list, a sensible thing to do would be to promote 3 news refs and allow them to bed in. A lot of referees on SG1 are similar in age around late 40s early 50s and wonít continue refereeing forever!

In terms of names missing, Iím surprised by the lack of Robinson and Breakspear, but itís worth remembering these names are a rumour and seemingly have no other evidence than hearsay!

Interesting list, if accurate.  This seems to indicate that Stroud has turned it around after a big dip in performance after that penalty error he made a couple of years ago.  Salisbury must have had a good 1st year on SG2 to already be considered for SG1, but it's possibly a year too early for him.  Gillett should be a definite for SG1 next year, and then can give or take Brooks and/or Harrington.

I would definitely expect to see Madley in SG2 for next year.  However many go up to SG1 will probably determine how many will join him.

Liddle? If it's who I'm thinking of, he must be one of the oldest ARs going!

Haven't you just quoted all the play-off referees there?

I donít think it will be long before Madley is back in the top flight...

Jarred Gillett should be there without question, the leading ex international FIFA official in one of the largest countries plus experience with VAR should make him a lock.

Stroud seems very unlikely....

Gillett and Brooks get my vote... the rest Iíve not seen much of this season.

I have heard a rumour that Oliver will be kept on SG1 next year, Ward and Eltringham will still be SG2 and Alan Young wonít be promoted to join them.
Oh and grandad Walton wont be coming back out of retirement

All play off referees which I suppose one would expect, with the exception of Busby in the place of Breakspear who did a play off whereas Busby didnít. That would be very strange if so

Don't take what I say for granted but my dad's mate currently is an advisor for the board on LOI Division 1 here in Ireland which is the 2nd tier

He is a football fanatic and would watch any football you put on the TV with enthusiasm

He has refing background as well

He said that in his opinion, Gillett and Harrington are miles ahead of the rest of the SG2

He also thinks that if he was in charge, he would demote Moss and Scott. He has a slight personal grudge against Moss but won't get into that. He thinks Scott performs better in Champ

Let me know your opinions
