Referee Peter Bankes, who began refereeing in Liverpool in 1996, aged 14, was appointed as a full time Select Group 2 referee in 2016 after becoming a National Group referee in 2014.

He was further promoted to the Select Group 1, at the start of the 2019/2020 season, enabling him to referee in the Premier League.

Mr Bankes last bossed a Fulham game in October 2019 when we bdrew 0-0 away at Middlesbrough in the Championship. He yellow carded three Boro players and two Fulham players,Denis Odoi (7,f), Harrison Reed (72,f). To make it a little more difficult for Fulham he sent off keeper Marek Rodak in the 17th minute. The Slovakian shot-stopper was penalised by referee Peter Bankes for deliberate handball after he misjudged his charge out of his box and Jonny Howson tried to flick the ball over his head.

Earlier in the same season, August 2019, Mr Bankes refed Fulham when we were beaten 2-1 at The Cottage by Nottingham Forest. He booked four Forest players, two for time wasting, and two Fulham players, Harry Arter (50,f) and Aboubakar Kamara (90+9,d).

Prior to that game he refed four Fulham games in 2017/18 the most recent of which was the 2-1 home win over Sunderland in April 2018. Mr Bankes booked four Sunderland players two for dessent, one for timewasting and one more for arguing with Kamara. He also booked two Fulham players, Bettinelli (90+3,tw) and Kamara (90+6,arg).

He also refed the 2-0 home win against Leeds in early April booking three Fulham players, Bettinelli (68,tw), McDonald (69,f), Johansen (78,f), and two Leeds players, one for dissent and the other for a foul.

In February he refed the 2-0 home win against Wolves when he booked Matt Targett for a fouland two Wolves players.

In September he refed the 2-1 away win at QPR when he booked three players from each team, the Fulham players were Norwood (63,f), Fredericks (64,d), Button (87,tw).

Mr Bankes refed Chelsea earlier this season, in October 2020, when they drew 3-3 at home to Southampton. He booked one player from each team.

Last season Mr Bankes refed 26 games and dished out 107 yellows and 3 reds, so an above average 4.1 yellows per game.

His busiest game in recent times was the Crystal Palace vrs Newcastle game which Crystal Palace won 1-0. Mr Bankes yellow carded two Palace players, six Newcastle players and sent off another Newcastle player in the 90minutes.
