Who do you turn to when you need to know about the laws of association football? Pundits and commentators on the telly? Don’t make me laugh!
Of course, you can always go online (or tweet me!). But the standard reference book for the Laws of the Game is the Referees’ Chart and Players’ Guide to the Laws of Association Football, or simply the Referees’ Chart. In print since 1896 and renewed every year to reflect the most recent changes, the Referees’ Chart is a publication that should not be absent from my collection. Thanks to my good friend Stephen Holt I recently added three to the one I already owned. I now have the charts for the seasons 1974-75, 1982-83, 1989-1990 and 1990-1991:
If you have any old Charts and want to drop them on me, just contact me and I’m sure we can come to an arrangement. Thanks!
