Iain Robertson Brines works for the police, but since refereeing takes up so much of his time, he considers himself a full-time referee. The Scotsman, who started his career in 1989, earned his FIFA badge in 2003 and lost it in 2009.

matches

If you look at his palmarés you'll see that the matches with the highest profile were group stage matches in the UEFA Cup.

Possibly his penultimate international match was as a 4th (or 5th) field referee in an experiment held during a mini tournament (u19) in Cyprus, November 2008.

IAIN BRINES

  • Iain Brines thinks there's no better feeling than to be part of a football match and since he wasn't a very good player he became a referee.
  • Brines doesn't like players who con the referee into a decision. But then again, what referee would?
  • He said staying calm is his strength but also that he has a tendency (to appear) to become aggressive.
  • He likes war movies and hiking in the hills of Scotland, his favorite kind of holiday. (source: the Scottish FA)
