A first for women's football
« on: February 18, 2008, 09:37:42 PM »
Paula Small from Merthyr will make Welsh Football history on Wednesday evening when she acts as fourth official for the Wales v Netherlands women's international at Newport.

This will be the first time that a Welsh female official has been involved with a UEFA championship match.

The game against the Netherlands is part of the UEFA Women's Championships and Paula will work with three Romanian officials.

Paula has great experience of refereeing in matches in Merthyr and around South Wales and has officiated in friendly women's internationals.

However, this will be a first when she appears at Newport Stadium on Wednesday 20th February at 7.30pm.The FAW congratulates Paula on the honour.
