Dealing with dismissals, cautions and other incidents

This page is designed to assist referees with reporting cautions, dismissals and misconduct to Middlesex County FA and / or other County FAs.

We have supplied on this page a set of blank forms that you should complete when reporting misconduct.  We have also supplied FA guides to how these reports should be prepared, examples of "what good looks like" and other information which you may find useful.

Please also refer to the Referees Section of The FA Website.

It is of paramount importance that when you report a caution or an incident of misconduct that these forms are completed correctly as the Middlesex County FA cannot act in a timely fashion unless it has all of the facts.

Therefore, we would ask all referees to utilise the example documents as an aide memoire to assist you when reporting misconduct. 

If you have any queries about the preparation of disciplinary reports, please contact Roy Shields, our Operations Manager on 020 8515 6911 or
