It’s a year that keeps getting better for Lisa after, earlier this year, being promoted to the official FIFA list of match officials

She has also been on a refereeing journey that has seen her be part of the first all-female refereeing team in Sussex, the first women’s game at Old Trafford and rise with the ever-growing WSL.

Lisa spoke to us about her excitement for the game: “I am extremely delighted with the appointment; it is the season that just keeps giving! The messages from referees locally, nationally, friends and colleagues, I am extremely grateful! 

“The game should be a great display of women's football, highly competitive and I look forward to all match officials contributing to a great game!”

Our Operations Manager, Paul Jeffery, also spoke of his delight at her appointment: “Lisa seems to outwardly take everything in her stride. Inwardly, it might be a different story! 

“This is another reward for all of her application, training, dedication, and hard work, over the years. She is a role model to any aspiring referee and is highly respected in the refereeing family.”
