RUFC - Ref Watch v Wycombe

RUFC - Ref Watch v Wycombe
Lee Probert from Wiltshire

Born in Avon, Gloucestershire on Sunday 13th August 1972, he began refereeing in 1986 in leagues local to Bristol, and later in the Football Conference South.
Lee was promoted to the assistant referees' list of the Football League in 1998, and made the step up to full referee in the League five years later.

He refereed his first FA Cup match on November 17, 2001, taking charge of the first round tie between Dagenham & Redbridge and Southport, which was settled for the home side by a Mark Stein penalty.

His first match after elevation to the League list of referees was the League Two encounter at Sixfields on August 9, 2003, when Northampton Town lost 1-0 to Torquay, a game in which Lee booked 2 players, Northampton's Paul Trollope and Torquay's Alex Russell.

His most notable other match was a League One play-off semi-final second leg, when Blackpool defeated Oldham by 3-1 on May 19, 2007.

On July 26, 2007, a Press release from the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, which employs Premier League referees full-time, stated that Lee had been included in the Select Group of 19 referees for season 2007-08.
Prior to this, he had been 'trialled' in the top league during the previous season, being given control of the game between Sheffield United and Portsmouth at Bramall Lane on January 13, 2007, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Lee's most recent appointment was Hull's 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion last Saturday, a game in which 3 players were booked....Ishmael Miller from West Bromwich and Ian Ashbee plus Sam Ricketts from Hull.
