Linda Arkinsall

I played football for 15 years and in 1993 I became a football referee. I loved playing the game so much that I just had to be involved in it even after I had a very serious injury and it put me out of playing. So someone said "why don't you become a referee?" and so I took the course and that was 26 years ago.
