Daisy Goldsmith, who turned 14 years old on the 10th March, has become the youngest referee out of 730 registered referees in Somerset and this would also make her the youngest in the country.
Daisy, whose uncle was a referee, was really keen to follow in his footsteps and contacted the Somerset FA to see when she could start training. Keith Buller (Referees Development Officer) allowed Daisy to start her training prior to her 14th birthday on the understanding that she wouldn't be allowed to referee until her birthday.
Daisy said: "I got into football when I was ten and moved from an all-girls school to a primary school. Then I decided to take up refereeing because I thought it would develop my all-round understanding of the game and make me a better player. My friends are fine with it because they know I am sporty. In fact some are proud of me."
Somerset has seen an increase of females interested in becoming referees and with the new introduction of the female referee pathway where females can progress all the way the FIFA list by doing female football only. (Source: www.somersetfa.com)
