Ref Attwell graduated from Staffordshire University in 2004. Refereeing had been a lifelong ambition for him, according to his father. Attwell worked his way up from local games to non-League football, then to the West Midlands League and the Football League.

He was promoted to the Select Group of referees for the 2016/17 season following consistent refereeing displays since being demoted as a National List official in 2012.
