Referee Peter Walton

Peter Walton started his career in 1986, getting promoted to the Football League Assistant Referee's list in 1993, where he enjoyed one season before being promoted to a Premiership League Assistant Referee (1994).

He then progressed on to FIFA as an Assistant Referee in 1996, and in the same season he assisted on the FA Cup Final before officiating in the Euro 96 Championships.

In 1998 he became a Referee in the Football League, giving him an opportunity to boss his first Fulham game, at home to Colchester in Division 2, how far we have come, and in 2003/2004 he was one of the new additions to the Premiership Select Group of officials.

Mr Walton has reffed 7 Fulham games since 1998 and in those games he has issued 9 cards against Fulham players, Bocanegra and Boa Morte twice each, and 14 against opposition players, sending off one opposition player. Fulham have won 5 of the 7 games.

Referee Stats - 2005/2006

Ref Walton is now in his third full year as a Premiership ref having bossed a total of 33 Premiership games in that time.

Apart from refusing us a pen against Orient, Mr Walton has avoided controversal decisions so far and his stats show that he is keeping his head down in all aspects of his match work. Hopefully he has a good game on Saturday.
