Many of you will be aware that the FAW's comprehensive game management system, COMET, is now being rolled-out to grassroots football this season.
If you are therefore refereeing any 11-a-side games (including Junior League) you will be required to use the system to record all relevant match data
The key areas that referees will have to manage via COMET are:
Of course, this system will be new to the teams just as much as for officials, so a certain amount of "learning on the job" is inevitable.
If there's one word of advice I would offer at this stage, it is to get to the ground earlier than you normally would and allow plenty of time to work with the teams to ensure the uploaded team line-ups are correct.
How to access Comet
If you are a new referee (or new to refereeing in Wales) and do not have a Comet log-in, please contact your local Referees' Officer in the first instance to ensure you are on the FAW database.
(For those living in the West Wales FA area, the Referees' Officer is David Rees and he can be contacted on Tel 07974 963361 or email firstname.lastname@example.org)

Please note that if you are unavailable you should put a reason (Holiday / Work / Injury etc) if you also accept a match that is not on comet , you must also indicate the match and who appointed you..
