How long have you been refereeing? Since about 1987

First match you can remember? Swanage and Wareham U10, I can’t remember the opposition!

Why did you start refereeing? I was coaching an U14 side in Dorset and society referees were pretty scarce on a Sunday morning in those days!

Favourite venue to referee at? I like several different places, so no real favourite

Best refereeing moment so far? Yellow-carding a player-coach for repeated dissent. I won’t say who..!

The last game you refereed? Moseley Ladies vs Bury St Edmunds league match

Pre-match meal? I don’t really eat before a game

Any pre-match rituals or superstition? None

One piece of advice for new referees? Always look confident, most players will then buy into your decision
