I am a referee, and i can only tell you that it depends on the ref. I would first tell the player to play on. If then the player continues to delay, i would then caution the player for deliberately delaying the game after being told to play. And then would add that time to the end of the game.

Can a referee caution a player who delays the taking of a freekick by standing less than ten yards from the ball?

Yes, because the player can either be asked to move back and do so, or stay there and not listen to the referee. If the player does not listen to the referee he/she wil be cautioned.

Can a player be cautioned after the match has ended?

The referee is allowed to caution or send off a player or substitute after a match has ended. In most leagues, the resulting consequences (i.e. sitting out future matches) will be the same.Even if a card is not shown, say a referee is approached in the parking lot, the behavior will still be included the game report and the consequences would still be the same. Showing the card is merely a method of communicating. The referee's failure to do so does not absolve the player from the consequences of their actions.

An attacking player is in the penalty are with just the goal keeper in front of them the attacker is tripped from behind by a defender What action would you take as a referee?

There is usually a bit of jostling during the set up for a corner kick, but if it's a bit too rough, the referee can verbally warn the players. If there is a blatant shove that the referee deems is a foul, the referee should blow his whistle and either caution (yellow card) the offending player or, if it is serious enough and violent enough, send off (red card) the offending player. (Naturally if it's a second caution, a send off will be issued.) After that issue is dealt with, the corner kick will be taken. The ball was not in play at the time of the foul. It will be put back in play the way it was going to be before the violation of the Laws took place. The violation of Law 12, the pushing, was dealt with in a manner consistent with the opinion of the referee. The corner is taken. Law 9 dealing with the ball being in or out of play (it was out of play) subordinates Law 12 as far as what happens regarding the resumption of play in this situation.

Can a referee caution or send off a player before the kick-off of the game and if so for what kind of offenses?
