Rebecca, who refereed one of our games earlier this season (Halifax away?) Has been appointed to Referee a Football League match this coming week.
She will become the first female referee appointed to a game at this level in this country

I thought Amy Fearn had refereed in the League?
Or was she just a linesperson?

Just checked. AF has been refereeing in the league for years.

Amy has taken over having initially been appointed as AR when the initially appointed Referee got injured.

Rebecca is the first female to be appointed to Referee in the EFL
