I have re-checked the LOTG. My previous advice is wrong. Once the substitution/interchange is made, the player coming onto the field is just a normal player like the other 10 members of his team, and is entitled to take any free-kick or penalty that has prevbiously been awarded before the stoppage.
The only minor technical exception relates to the substitute taking a throw-in. He needs to enter the field (to complete the substitution) then leave the field to take the throw-in.
The referee has control over all people in the technical. That is, he may dismiss officials from the technical for any mis-behaviour, as well as caution or dismiss (red card) any substitutes for mis-behaviour.
Further, as extracted from current LOTG page 56: * only one person at a time is authorised to issue tactical instruction from the techncial area * the coach and other officials must remain within the techncial area at all times except in special circumstances, eg when referee given permission to enter the field due to an injury * the coach and all other occupants of the technical are must behave in a responsible manner
Aspects regarding caution or dismissal of substituttes are covered in various other areas of the laws.
The TA should be managed by the Match Officials. In an ideal world, Coaches and Managers would do it naturally, however, Referees may take action against persons in this area, or those who should be in there.
Any opinions expressed here are mine alone and not necessarily indicative of any formal Referee's body unless otherwise stated.
I need to know about "offside" rules. An attacking player is on the eighteen yard line with the ball. His team mate is 10 yards in front of him and a defender is near the attacking player WITHOUT the ball. The defender moves towards the player with the ball leaving the non striking attacking player with no other defender in front of him except the goalkeeper. The attacker on the 18 yard line beats another defender, strikes and "scores". The referee denies the goal thereby changing the complexion of the match and of course the result. Is the decision to disallow the goal correct? As a parent who has a son in u/12 first division and as a parent who never played the beautiful game and has limited knowledge of offside, can you tell me if the unofficial referee on the day was correct in disallowing the goal? Also, I witnessed other games in this competition where the referee appears to be no older than the u/12 players in games that had nothing to do with my son. I thought referees were supposed to be at least 3 years older in junior games. Also with the u/12 comp so tight should there be senior refs appointed to the semi finals. Two teams that are in the hunt for semis/grand final appear to be playing more like rugby league teams rather than football teams and the number of official referees/linesmen seems to be lacking. ALL games against Auburn, either home or away dont seem to have any refs appointed. I get around to as many u/12 games as I can. Its a very, very good competition but one I would hate to see decided by an unofficial ref in the case of Auburn or perhaps because of the shortcomings of a junior ref who may be influenced by loud intimidating parents/coaches. The competition deserves strong senior refs in the finals. Sorry for the long winded post but I am new to the round ball game and trying to learn about rules and what are acceptable standards in the u/12s. Kind regards, HappyG.

Happy. If the player in an offside position was not involved in the play, ie he didn't touch the ball or did not obstruct a defender or the keepers attempts to save the goal, then the goal should have been allowed. He is what is called passive offside.
