If that is the case, it seems quite peculiar that he wasn’t appointed to referee any of the play off games!

Well I can state with 100% certainty that the pgmol have not invited Missy bmb to take over Mike Riley's job! My hat is still in the ring for a committee role at the MLSZ JB next month when the committee is up for election... Fixtures Secretary would do me nicely Dr Csányi 😘

I’m 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 (I’m sure there are more)

The Daily Mail are reporting the same five as having interviews.

They probably got that reading here, it wouldn't be the first time! They've even been known to quote a post word for word and add a source revealed or words to that effect!

Have I potentially become regarded as ‘a source close to PGMOL’’? Now that would be amusing 😂

If so that is very lazy journalism isn’t it

That article has received 80 replies, and 150 retweets on Twitter, so I hope he has not just taken it from here.  However, I would not be surprised if this site was the source.

I was hoping we might have heard something this week regarding promotions - any idea when the interviews are taking place and when we might find out about promotions?

I would imagine we will hear news before the Euros start.

I just can’t see how given the incident this season that Drysdale would be promoted. He was found guilty and suspended. A promotion in the same season would seem quite incredible

Having met (and worked with) Keith S and Darren D I commend them on their achievement of being good enough to be considered for promotion. BUT for the life of me I cannot see how promoting either or both does anything but block up the bottle neck of promotion. It seems "we" have great trouble in getting the older/more experienced guys to move out as it is, without promoting guys in their late40s/early50s - bonkers!

Am really pleased to see Darren drysdale given an interview after his troubles earlier in the season.

Really?  It all seems rather perverse. All those seasons of, for me, steady, safe performances and then he goes of the rails, gets suspended and subsequently gets shortlisted for promotion. Simply unfathomable, I'm afraid.

Agree. I've seen an awful lot of him and his performances are usually in the 'average' category.

Fortunes rise and fortunes fall.  It wasn't that long ago that Joyce and Backhouse looked set fair for promotion to SG2. Now, if this list is to be believed, they don't even get an interview for it.

The powers that be clearly want Bobby Madley back at the top of English refereeing so I have little doubt he will progress and no doubt up to SG1 at the end of this next season. Whether he should or not is another matter but once the decision has been made to rehabilitate offenders then promotion should be decided on ability alone. No doubt the fans of Newport would have a view ! I suspect Hicks will join him and then it depends on how many places there are to fill.

Gillett and Harrington seem to be regarded as the best of the current crop of SG2 so may well make a move up. However, I believe the powers that be clearly see a glittering future for Brooks and Salisbury and so they cannot be discounted.

I guess position on the Merit Table determines whether one is called for interview. Or it jolly well should be. Then of course the process becomes far more subjective. It is not unknown, in many professions, if a marking grid is employed by an interview panel,  that whom they want to promote come out of the interview process with the best marks. Whatever systems are put in place it is nigh impossible to discount the power of patronage.
