Referee David Webb, 42-year-old, from County Durham, took up the whistle at the age of 14 after reading the match programme, when his beloved Sunderland lost 2-0 to Liverpool in the FA Cup Final at Wembley in 1992, in which the Football Association wrote about their need to recruit referees.

Mr Webb dropped out after a year to continue playing but returned to refereeing six years later and became a Football League assistant referee in 2006 before graduating in the middle the following year. He was promoted to the Select Group 2 list for 2018/2019 season.

Fulham have only been bossed by Ref Webb three times, in the 1-0 home win over Middlesbrough he booked two players, one from each team. The Fulham player booked was Kevin McDonald, for a foul in the 60th minute

In the 1-1 home draw with West Brom in September 2019, booking Steven Sessegnon (41,f) and Denis Odoi (90+4,f).

In  December 2017 in the 2-2 away draw at Hull, Kamara scored both goals. Mr Webb only booked one player our Kevin McDonald.

Preston last had the pleasure of Mr Webb in November 2019 when they won 1-0 away at Charlton. He yellow carded eight players, five of them were Preston players.

Last Season Ref Webb refed 34 games dishing out 102 yellows, a just below average 3.0 cards a game, and 5 reds. So far this season Mr Webb has refed 27 games dished out 69 yellows, a beloe average of 2.6 a game, and no reds.

His busiest games in recent fixtures was the Walsall v Oxford game in April 2019 when he yellow carded three players from each side, gave a second yellow to one of the Oxford players while dishing out a straight red to another Oxford player and the Charlton v Preston game in November 2019 when he booked eight players.
