It has been said numerous times on these boards that one game does not define/decide a season, so why should 1 decision (in 1 game) define/decide a season or promotion???

It sort of did define morecombe and Newport’s season/promotion.
My views are my own and not that of rate the ref .

Possibly could be said that Joss Labadie blazing over the bar from a couple of yards out in extra time also was the defining moment, however, this was just one match and Cheltenham, Cambridge and Bolton had their defining moments during 46 matches when Newport were not good enough.
Had they been good enough they would not have had to rely on three extra matches and a referee's decision and we would not be discussing whether or not that one decision should affect the promotion of an official.
Referee's decision used to be final!

My only issue with that, is had it been a regular season game and deemed to be a KM error the mark would have reflected that and possibly reduced that referees average sufficiently that they were no longer in the top 3 or so. Previously as mentioned Ross Joyce's season finished on one wrong decision and there have been examples elsewhere too.
It will come down to interpretation - correct or supportable, wont affect him, wrong match defining incident should. Love to know if asked at interview did he believe (in hindsight) he was correct, what would he say?

I thought Charles Breakspear would of been on the interview list.
Having refereed the Pizza Cup final and having had play off games for the last couple of seasons.


Surprised not to see Tim Robinson too as he gets a lot of the bigger and TV games.

Although, having said all that, a defining error by a referee in the forthcoming Euros could end his tournament.

Different competition, I know, but the same principle.

Charles Breakspear was among the three referees out of six last year who were interviewed for SG2 but did not make the cut. The others were Darren Handley and Marc Edwards.

Darren Handley? Are you sure? He had fitness issues and was never really appointed to any games of relative importance.

Any word on promotions from the National League (2A) to the National Group (1)? I dare say the referees and assistants chosen for the NL play-offs are among the front runners. Simon Mather and Rebecca Welch will also be under consideration having had trial matches and I would think it likely that one of those two will do the NL Promotion Final.

PS. Is the David Richardson who will referee the Stockport vs Hartlepool PO semi the same one that was a FIFA Assistant some time ago?

I believe Simon finished top of the merit list, so will highly likely referee the final at Ashton Gate👍🏼

I did refer to D.Richardson a few weeks ago.On a different tack,I accidently caught 5 minutes of a WHU-Villa game of many years ago.The referee was David Richardson.In only 5 minutes watching ,both linesmen seemed flag happy and the kits of the officials had amazingly short shorts.......................
