Cumberland FA was pleased to receive news that Anthony Backhouse will referee the FA Vase Final at Wembley on Sunday 21st May.
The Level 1 Cumberland FA referee will officiate the fixture between Ascot United and Newport Pagnell Town under the Wembley arch (KO 12:30pm, live on Sky Sports)
Scott Taylor (Cumberland FA Referee Development Officer) said: “This FA appointment to referee the FA Vase Final at Wembley is great news for the County FA and reflects the hard work and commitment shown by our top referee over the season.
"I am extremely happy for him as it comes 12 months after he was appointed fourth official on last season’s FA Trophy Final also at Wembley.
"This game on Sunday is a fabulous appointment for Anth and comes only days after he took charge of a League 1 Play-Off Semi-Final, so he must be doing well and we all keep our fingers crossed for him as he has been performing superbly for a number seasons now in League 1 and League 2.”
