Dermot GallagherDermot Gallagher(Banbury, Oxon)
Dermot Gallagher is a Premiership League veteran, having established himself on the country's top referee list back in 1992. He made the FIFA roster two years later in 1994. Gallagher is one of the few top referees that actually earns a living through football, albeit at a lower level. The 42-year-old Banbury resident is commercial manager for non-league Thame United.

He began refereeing in the Banbury Junior League back in 1978 and progressed remarkably quickly through the ranks, becoming a Football League linesman in 1985. Gallagher's career highlight so far was taking charge of the 1996 FA Cup Final - the year he also officiated at the African Cup-Winners Cup final and the Euro '96 tournament.

Of the 12 Fulham games Mr Gallagher has bossed since 1999 we have won 6 drawn 3 and lost 4 which makes him one of our luckier Refs.

Regarded by most Football fans as one of the better Ref's.
Referee Stats - 2004/2005

Dermot Gallagher is one of the more consistent Ref's in the game and has always been one of the less card happy Refs. As usual this season Mr Gallagher is keen to see the game flow with just below average whistle, cards and pen stats. The top whistler and penalty Ref at the moment is Phil Dowd with Mr Riley taking the top red card man position and Mr Bennett clear at the top of the yellow card issuers league.
