With a break in our County Cup Finals season following the Easter Holidays, we are taking a look back at the last few weeks and celebrating the appointments of the match officials whose hard work and dedication to officiating in County Cup fixtures has seen them appointed to this season's Finals.
Nick Phipps, a Level 5 Referee from Slough was appointed to the U16 Youth Cup Final. Of the occasion, Nick said: "It was an honour to referee the U16 Youth Cup Final and enjoyed the day immensely, from the pre-match with the county officials and refereeing team to the superbly contested action on the pitch with two sets of talented players and a thrilling penalty shoot-out victory to Cookham Dean.
"Newport Pagnell Town were a credit to themselves and was a shame that one team had to lose in the cruellest of ways but both clubs conducted themselves with distinction and complete respect to this most prestigious of cup finals. Thanks to Chris and all the County FA team for putting on a superb event and hope the travelling support enjoyed their day out.
