Lee Probert 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 last 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 37 games, last season (10 Premiership), it is clear that he can at least keep his cards in his pocket more than the average Premiership ref. As Mr Probert has bossed just one Premiership game so far this season last season's stats are being used.
Referee Stats - 2007/2008 Premiumship
Ref Probert is  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 three times during his 37 games last season so well below average.

Previous Fulham games what was refed by Lee Probert
15-08-2007  Premier Fulham 2-1 Bolton 3y 0r
Bookings: Bocanegra, Konchesky (Fulham) Diouf (Bolton)
The one that saw Tony Warner start his disasterous run of errors that put paid to his time at Fulham. It also saw the first return of Iceman Helguson and his mistake that gave Healy his second goal for Fulham. Everything looked so good at the end of this game but as we know now it all went  horribly wrong.
Since 1998
