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 1-0 away defeat at Huddersfield on the 5th November 2018,

Prior to that game he refed Fulham in August this year when Fulhamlost 3-1 to Tottenham at Wembley and there were no cards issued.

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 Oldham was back in Jan 2011 when they lost 2-1 at home to Rochdale in League One. He yellow carded two Oldham players and sent a Rochdale player off in the 85th minute with a straight red.

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 25 games and dished out 82 yellows and 3 reds, so an average of 3.28 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
