Whole Game System (WGS) Discipline Reporting:

We are now asking all referees to report all Cautions, Sending offs and Misconduct reports via The Whole Game system (WGS) portal which can be accessed via the following link: https://wholegame.TheFA.com

To use the WGS discipline reporting portal you will need your FAN number or email address, and your FA password. If you do not know you’re FAN or password then please contact Kevin Small at kevin.small@wiltshirefa.com

 

Guide to Report Writing:

Two misconduct reporting guides can be found on this page. The first is a guide to all forms of discipline reporting which can be located by clicking the image to the right of the page; the second, a guide to help referees with sending off reports, giving examples of how to correctly compose a report based on different incidents, can be located at the foot of the page. 

 

Multi Caution Match Report:

If a referee cautions a player during a game the referee is required to report this to the County FA of the offending player within TWO DAYS (excluding Sundays).

With the WGS referees now only need to submit one multi caution report form and the WGS will send the report to the correct County FA, there is now no need to complete separate reports if the two competing clubs come from different County FA’s.

Referees are required to ensure when populating the Multi Caution report form that they include details of the fixture (please include team details; i.e. 1st, reserves, U18, U17 etc.), details of the player and the cautioned code for the offence that has been committed, (i.e. C1 to C7), on C1 offenses you will also be asked to give further information by adding one of ten two-letter codes.

Players receiving two cautions in a game must be reported on the standard misconduct reporting form and not the multi caution report form.

Sending Off Reports:

If a referee sends off a player or substitute player he is required to report this to the County FA of the offending player within TWO DAYS (excluding Sundays).

Sending off Reports should be generated when a referee sends off any player or substitute players, before, during or after the game. This must also include a player /substitute that has been sent off for a second caution offense.

A new report must be generated for each sending off, however like cautions the WGS system will direct the report to the correct County FA.

Misconduct Reports:

A misconduct report must be submitted for all misconduct that is not committed by a player or a substitute, this is includes coaches, managers and all club officials and the misconduct of spectators.

Referees are required to report all misconduct to the County FA of the offending player within TWO DAYS (excluding Sundays). Like sending offs the WGS system will direct the report to the correct County FA.
