Referee David Webb, 44-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.

The last time Mr Webb refed a Fulham game was in February 2020 in the 2-0 home win against Preston. Mr Webb kept his cards in his pockets despite 11 fouls by Fulham and 6 for Preston. Aboubakar Kamara scored Fulham's only goel, the other goals was a Preston own goal, he launched a right footed shot from the centre of the box to the centre of the goal. Assisted by Ivan Cavaleiro following a fast break.

Prior to the Preston game Fulham had 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, Aboubakar Kamara scored both goals. Mr Webb only booked one player our Kevin McDonald.

Birmingham last had the pleasure of Mr Webb in February 2021 when they beat QPR 2-1 at home.. He yellow carded three Birmingham players and two QPR players.

Last Season Ref Webb refed 35 games dishing out 83 yellows, a well below average 2.4 cards a game, and 4 reds.

His busiest games in recent fixtures was the Coventry vrs Reading game just weeks ago in August 2021 when he yellow carded five Coventry players and three Reading players
