UEFA Category 1 referee Andre Marriner was 37 when he gained his FIFA badge in 2009. He has been a select group referee in England since 2005 and his first game was Wigan v Fulham. Since then he has gone on to control some of the biggest premier league games such as Liverpool v United.

Introduction to refereeing

In 1992, Andre went to a grass roots match as a neutral spectator. When the referee didn't turn up, he was asked to referee it. At the end they paid him £10 for his services. He loved it and passed his course in April 1992.

Praise

Amdre gives praise to Collina and Barry Knight. He says Collina controlled all the top matches during his career and Knight always managed to referee the top football league games with little fuss and controversy.

His selection for the FIFA list at the age of 37 could be seen as either a lack of good young referees in England or a show of respect by the FA.

U19s Championships

In may 2009, Andre was called to France to officiate in the U19 UEFA championships. He took assistant Dave Richardson, and will officiate in Group 5.

Play Off semi finals

Recently, Andre was rewarded by being appointed to the play off semi final. He took control of Preston v Sheffield United 2nd leg.

2009...

...has been a big year for Andre. He took control of 2 of the biggest matches in England with Manchester United v Liverpool and Arsenal v United. He handled both well, with minimum fuss. Probably the rest referee in the premier league for the first half of 2009/2010 season.

ANDRE

  • The highlight of Andre's career was receiving the letter inviting him to referee in the southern football league.
  • Andre still views his biggest match as the 2003 Inaugural Conference Play Off Final. He says it led to him being promoted to the National League and was a huge game for both clubs involved.
  • Andre was involved in an incident in 2009 in the Liverpool v Wolves match. Stephen Ward, a wolves player on his second yellow fouled an opponent, but Andre wrongly cautioned Christophe Berra. He eventually sorted it out, and sent off Ward.
