Jack Johnston started refereeing to keep in touch with the sport when he moved to a place too far away from his original team. He was talented and so far Johnston is the only Tasmanian referee to have reached FIFA ranks.
After a game between China and a Tasmanian team Johnston was pushed by the National President of the Referees Federation to start refereeing on the main land. From then on Jack's career pulled off with matches in the national league and the final of the Philips Cup.

In 2010 Johnston became a member of the board of Football Federation Tasmania.
