Foy to ref the Birmingham game

last updated Tuesday 06th December 2005, 2:33 PM
Referee Foy Christopher Foy - St Helens Referee Foy wanted to be a professional footballer but wasn't up to it so he decided to become a ref. He is finding it enjoyable as "for the first time I am being paid for something I love to do." Ex-Lancashire policeman Foy started refereeing in 1983, became a Football League referee in 1994 and graduated to the Barclaycard Premiership roster in 2001. Foy is now in his fifth full season as a Premiership League referee and is confident enough to believe that ref's get 99.9% of their decisions correct.Ref Foy's appearances in Fulham games have been few and far between and so far there have been no major errors to be held against him, from a Fulham point of view.
Referee Stats - 2005/2006

Ref Foy is coasting along quietly at the moment within the overall norms of Premiership refereeing. Last season he enjoyed dishing out a few penalties, mainly in one of our games, and is already above average for the number he has given this season.

Ref Foy has a problem in decision making which seems to end up with more decisions going against the visiting team.
