last updated Tuesday 14th August 2007, 8:04 PM
Referee Lee Probert - GloucestershireReferee Lee Probert - Gloucestershire
Lee Probert is 35 years-old and comes from South Gloucestershire.He began refereeing in 1986, in leagues local to Bristol, and later in the Football Conference South.He refereed his first FA Cup match in November 2001 and his first match in the national League was a League Two game in August 2003.Professional Game Match Officials Limited, which employs Premier League referees, announced this summer that Probert had been included in the Select Group of 19 referees for season 2007-08.He has been accused of going by the book even if it interferes with the flow of the game, however based on all his 38 games, last season, it is clear that he can at least keep his cards in his pocket more than the average Premiership ref. Probert has reffed just two Premiership games Sheff Utd v Portsmouth and Bolton v Charlton and both games ended in draws.
Referee Stats - 2006/2007 Premiumship
Ref Probert is reputed to be a keen whistle blower but when he does use it he is less likely to issue a yellow than his mates. In terms of red cards he pulled his out five times during his 38 games last season so well below average.
