Referee David Coote started refereeing as a sixteen year-old. He refereed in the Notts Alliance League, the Northern Counties East Football League, the Northern Premier League and the Conference North before being promoted to the Football League.

A talented cricketer David played cricket for Notts at various youth age groups, before committing to his refereeing career.

He was promoted to the list of Football League referees in 2010 and to the Select Group 2 of Football Referees, employed on a full time basis, in the summer of 2016. In the summer of 2018 Mr Coote was promoted to the Select Group 1 of Premier League referees.

The last time Mr Coote bossed a Fulham game was in December 2018 when we drew at home against Leicester. Ref Coote kept his cards in his pocket.

Earlier in the same season Mr Coote visited Craven Cottage when we beat Burnley 4-2. He booked three players, two from Fulham, Shurrle (59,f), Bettinelli (90+1,tw).

Mr Coote has been reasonably lucky for Fulham overseeing more Fulham victories than draws and defeats.

Leicester were last bossed by Ref Coote in the 1-1 draw with Fulham in December 2018, mentioned above.

Last season he reffed 37 games, dished out 151 yellows, an above average 4.1 yellows per game and an average 5 reds. This season so far he has refed 23 games and shown 86 yellows, an average of 3.7 per game, and 5 reds.

His busiest game recently was the Sheff Wed 1-0 defeat of Preston in December 2018, when he booked six players, five from the Preston side, he also sent off a Preston player in the 26th minute. Earlier in October in the 1-0 win by Colchester against Lincoln he booked NINE players, five from Lincoln.
