As far as I am as aware, Howard Webb never played professional football. Hi father was a referee for 35 years, and Howard was a policeman with the South Yorkshire Police.
every football game only needs only one refree in it.
The refree at the football field gave the defence a penalty.
Football has a referee.
On the side lines
The 'refree' is an umpire and there can be either
no because once the football player has lost all of his forward momentum the refree will mark the ball down there.
The only referee to refree both a cricket and a football match is the West Indian Ken Buckonor.
The people who assist the refree are called the line judges and they stand on the corner of the court on the opposite side of the server to see something that the head refree may have missed
umpire gives the decision on the field whereas refree is responsible for watching if the sportsmanship is maintained and the game has gone as scheduled
