Anthony Taylor started refereeing in the Northern Premier League in 2002, progressing to officiate in the Conference North in 2004. He was appointed to the Football League referees' list at the start of the 2006–07 season and was then promoted to the list of Select Group Referees who officiate primarily in the Premier League in 2010. In 2013 he was promoted to the FIFA officials list.

His first Premiership game was the Fulham 1-0 win over Portsmouth in February 2010 which was the year we played in the Europa League Final.

The most recent time Mr Taylor refed a Fulham game was in the 1-2 home defeat by Oldham in the FA Cup in January 2019. He booked five players three of them from Fulham, Kebano (38,f), Odoi (62,d), R Sessegnon (76,f).

Prior to this game he bossed the 1-0 away defeat at Huddersfield on the 5th November 2018 when he booked three players,  two of them from Fulham< Fosu-Mensah (34,f), Mitrovic (76,d).

Mr Taylor had of course bossed Fulham during the Play Off Final at Wembley when Fulham beat Aston Villa 1-0. As we know he sent Denis Odoi off for two yellow cards given for fouls. Mr Taylor also booked four Villa players and Kamara for disent.

The last time Mr Taylor refed Southampton was on the 2nd February this year when they drew 1-1 away at Burnley. He yellow carded four players including one Southampton player, Matt Target.

Last season, 2017/2018, he refed 40 games and dished out 147 yellows and 6 reds, so a slightly above average 3.7 yellows per game. Half his red cards were in FA Cup games. This season so far he has refed 36 games and dished out 122 yellows and 6 reds, so an average of 3.38 yellows per game.

His busiest games recently were the Play Off Final between Fulham and Aston Villa, in May 2018 when he dished out 6 yellows and a red and the Sheff Utd versus Blackburn game on 29th Dec 2018 when he dished out 6 yellows and 2 reds.
