Referee Lee Probert began refereeing in 1986, in leagues local to Bristol and later in the Football Conference South.

He was promoted to the assistant referees' list for the Football League in 1998, and made the step up to full referee five years later. He has been part of the Select Group of referees since 2007, after a successful 11-year career as an official in the Football League.

Mr Probert missed the whole of the 2015/16 season due to injury and returned to the Premier League in April 2017. He remained a member of the Select Group of referees.

Mr Probert last refed Fulham in the 4-1 away defeat at Man Utd and he booked Seri and then he booked Anguissa twice, Sending him off in the 68th minute.

Prior to that game Mr Probert bossed the 2-2 draw away at Brighton in September 2018. He booked six players, three from each team, the Fulham players booked were Johansen (82,not retreating), Mitrovic (84,handball), Le Marchand (90+4,foul).

Prior to the Brighton game he refed the 1-1 home draw with Leeds United in March 2017. He booked three Fulham players, three Leeds players and followed up with a second yellow for Leeds player K Phillips in the 89th minute.

Brighton have not been refed by Mr Probert since their 2-2 home draw with Fulham in September 2018.

Last season he refed 29 games and dished out 57 yellows, a very low average of just under two yellows per game, and 5 reds. This season so far he has bossed 18 games dishing out 62 yellows, so an increased average of 3.4 cards a game, and 6 reds

His busiest game in recent time was the League One game between Sunderland and Luton when he booked six players and dished out two stright reds.
