What Level of Football have you been officiating this past season?

Perthshire Amateur League.

What was the Highlight? 

I've had a few highlights this season with big appointments in the Scottish Youth Cup as AR and a North of Tay Semi Final.  The biggest was refereeing my first cup final, the Smith League Cup Final between Fair City and ASC.

What have you learned over the past season?

A lot I think.  I feel like my man management skills have improved a lot over the last year. 

What will you do with your post-season break?

Run lots. 

What are your aims for next season?

To keep improving and see where it takes me come the end of the season.

Finally, who takes absolutely ages to get ready in the changing room (games or training!?)

Gordon McCabe, he takes forever to do his hair!

Amateur (with the occasional junior friendly)

What was the Highlight? 

Without a doubt assisting in the Scottish amateur cup final at hampden...and I was on the sunny side of the park ☀

What have you learned over the past season?

Commitment is key as it open doors... wow that was good! I should copywrite that, you'll maybe see it on a fortune cookie one day. 

What will you do with your post-season break?

Probably shop a lot with the wife....please God let there be loads of friendlies!!! 

What are your aims for next season?

North of Tay final (middle or line) preferably in the sun! Other than that just enjoy it has much as I have this season. 

Finally, who takes absolutely ages to get ready in the changing room (games or training!?)

Well I would say I was the longest in the shower but in terms of getting ready defo Paul Swan if he was anymore laid back he'd be horizontal!
