    She certainly cannot be worse than most of the male referees we see week in week out.

    I thought that the referees we had over the Easter break were canny.

    Talkshite had her in the news on the morning. Said “you can see how she gets on” but this was the only game mentioned. Quite embarrassing that they basically said “we’re going to watch you like a hawk cos you’re a woman”

    funnily enough, Twitter kicked off after the first time they said that. They didn’t say it on the next news bulletin

    Good for her.

    It's only going to become more and more prevalent. Women are going to come into the men's game in a big way. It's happening in most other sports. Especially in the US.

    The idea that the US are more progressive than us in any matter makes me feel a bit queasy.

    I can't see any reason why a woman shouldn't ref a game mesell. But she will have the search light on her, way more than any bloke reffing such a game.

    Good luck to her.

    At least this will stamp out players arguing with the ref. Why bother? I say this in both jest and seriously. Can you imagine a player giving her both barrels. He would be publicly shamed. 'You musnt treat a lady like that?'

    I saw a female ref in the Isthmian League a season or two ago. She didn't have a particularly good game but that was nothing to do with her gender. It was a bad-tempered game, with a couple of deserved sendings off. The players treated her like she was a male ref though i.e. screaming in her face etc.

    I hope she washed the cups up as well, like they say a woman's work is never done.
    In all fairness I hope she does well, and it's not like she even needs to be that good to be better than the useless twats we've had this season
