Premier League Referee to ‘meet’ with CFA Match Officials

This Wednesday, Cumberland FA are delighted to welcome Premier League Referee Peter Bankes to the #CFARefsRoom

The session is from 7-8pm. 

Peter will join us to look back over what was a very strange first season as a Premier League Referee; following his promotion from Select Group 2, where he had been for the previous 3 seasons. 

He will look at what it was like officiating post Covid-19 restrictions, culminating in him being 4th official at the EFL Championship Playoff Final at a near empty Wembley Stadium recently. 


Cumberland registered Referees who would like to attend the online session, please e-mail

Due to the re-start of competitive grassroots football the fortnightly sessions will now take place monthly. 

Ben Snowdon, Cumberland FA CEO commentedWe believe the online support has offered a really good opportunity for us to connect with referees and allow some much needed communication between like-minded officials, and feel that this is something that we should continue with in the future.”
