The Football Association has announced the match officials for the 2019 SSE Women's FA Cup Final.
Abigail Byrne [Suffolk FA] has been appointed as match referee for the showpiece event between Manchester City and West Ham United, taking place on Saturday 4th May at Wembley Stadium connected by EE. She will be joined by assistant referees Sian Massey-Ellis [Birmingham FA] and Mel Burgin [Sheffield & Hallamshire FA], and fourth official Lisa Benn [Berks & Bucks FA].
Abigail was promoted into the elite level of refereeing in 2015 and has operated in The FA Women's Super League [FA WSL] since 2016.
She has refereed 11 FA WSL and FA Women's Championship matches so far this season and has recently become a FIFA referee.
Abigail said: "I'm absolutely honoured to be appointed to the biggest game in women's football. It's the call that every referee wants to get, but never a call you expect to get.
"I've had a good season so far but I never imagined I'd get the chance to referee at Wembley. It's a massive game and it will be an honour to be a part of it."
