What would she be like with the fury of the Lorne street on her back , a deciding factor according to some losing managers 😂

On that showing nothing to get furious about,

She was fit enough to constantly keep up with play, which in the modern game [at this level]  quite a few refs can't - that allowed her to have a good view of play and award decisions correctly S

I think it’s good and nice for us to be the first game, with Carol as owner as well. Will judge the referee of performance not gender, let’s be honest there’s been some terrible ones the past year or

Good for her. Nice to be part of a little bit of history at least. In all honesty so long as it’s not Kettle reffing us am ok with anyone else pretty much.

Still think it’s unnatural.

What's unnatural? That someone knows the rules, applies them inteligently and runs a game better than most referees we have had to suffer this season!

Great to win an historic day. They will be saying in a hundred years time “first game a female reffed an English league game was in 2021 when Port Vale beat Harrogate 2-0”.  Females should not be disadvantaged in any way from refereeing a mans football match and we should have more female refs as long as it doesn’t become a situation where we have to have x amount of female officials to avoid discrimination.

On your own with this one you absolute weapon.

Clearly not a father to a daughter, as a lot of people in this world are (yes, beyond this football forum).

She did a great job and I haven't seen anyone suggest otherwise.

Rachel Welch was excellent today. In fact the best referee I have seen at our level for a long time. 

I loved her in 2000 yrs BC , had some stirrings as a youngster I can tell you !!!

I wonder how long it will be before the ref is a computer, assisted by multiple cameras with whistles and decisions blasted out over the PA system?

We’ve had one female referee in one match...ever. Let’s not sh!t ourselves. Men will be fine.

She did fine, but hardly the toughest game to referee. There was the one penalty appeal, other than that a walk in the park to be fair.

Not sure if you were joking but I was trying to say the more women referees the better, the standard of refereeing has certainly improved through the years and why should women be any worse?
