And yet they can't find three female officials for most of the top English women's matches.

With the exception of a few assistants like Sian M-E and Natalie Aspinall, female officials in England don't seem to progress, and certainly not in the middle.

I was present on the night Amy Fearn refereed the last 20 minutes of a Championship game at Coventry.  I believe she is still the only female to referee any part of a FL match.  Incredibly that was nearly 11 years ago and there hasn't been a lot of progress in that time.  She seemed perfectly competent on that night so why has so little happened in the meantime?

When I qualified as a referee in 1969 I was on the same course as the first woman to take the course in the Birmingham County FA area.  She passed with flying colours but was told she could not register as a referee because she was female, so she struggled to get any games.  I was running an under 18  team at the time so when there was no appointed referee I got her to take a few games and she acquitted herself really well.  But it was an uphill struggle and I believe she gave up after a year or two. 

Incidentally, I did watch the San Marino-Gibraltar match yesterday and I have to say I didn't think the referee did that well.  It got a bit feisty near the end as SM wasted time shamelessly, and she did seem to be intimidated by what was happening at times.

Happen to notice Amy Fearn refereed Manchester City v Manchester United yesterday in the Women's Super League.  It finished 2-2, and in case microscopist and flipmode read this, City let slip a 2 goal lead!

Many thanks bmb.  I failed miserably to properly quote the bit I wanted. Always confuses me when there's quotes within quotes within quotes....

You're welcome and you're not alone in getting confused by how it works on here. I've got the hang of it only because I fix them so often! ;D

Whilst I don't disagree with the overall sentiment, worth pointing out that in this weekend's WSL matches, all six games were refereed by female officials and in the case of the two most high profile matches, all four officials were female.

I've been fortunate enough to have assisted two of these officials in WSL matches earlier this season and they both acquitted themselves admirably.

Times are changing ... unfortunately slower than would be ideal, despite the extra support now on offer to promising female officials (in my county, two of our three nominations this year for FA Core were female)

I would have thought that the Manchester derby was one of the two highest profile games and, although I was not watching it closely, they didn't look all female to me ......or should I saw all look female.

Fair point!  Slightly misworded as I meant to say two OF the most high profile matches (Arsenal v Chelsea and the Midlands derby). :)
