The match officials have now been confirmed for the Women’s Super League encounter between Arsenal and Everton at Meadow Park on Saturday 20th January (14:00).

Referee: Melissa Burgin.
Assistant Referee: Lisa Rashid.
Assistant Referee: Ruby Sykes.
Fourth Official: Megan Wilson.

Melissa Burgin was successful in reaching the level of 1W and was promoted to referee Women’s Super League fixtures at the start of the season, along with Adewunmi Soneye and Phoebe Cross.

This will be the first time that Burgin has refereed a match involving Arsenal and the second time for a match involving Everton.

Burgin’s only match involving Everton was their 2-1 defeat at Walton Hall Park versus Liverpool in the FA Women’s League Cup Group B back in December. On this occasion, no cards were brandished.

So far this season she has refereed 7 matches, three of which were in the Women’s Super League. In those matches, she showed a total of fourteen yellow cards (2.00) and no red cards. Five of those fourteen cards came in the Women’s Championship match between Birmingham City and Durham at St. Andrew’s Stadium back in November.
