FA Cup Match

This week I officiated in my first FA Cup match.

I was an assistant referee (lino) in a FA Women's Cup second qualify round. We even had the teams line up and handshake as seen on Premiership games and others now for the Respect campaign. The Respect Film is quite funny.

The pitch was on a slight slope and it was an unusal warm day (20C) for October. So when it ended up I was sprinting up and down the line virtually all of the time I was glad of the final whistle. Luckily it did not need to go to extra time.
