    I've shared a boat with the away team, made for an interesting journey back with everyone ignoring me as they weren't happy with my refereeing!

    I've shared a dressing room with the home team many a time.

    There are still a surprising number of clubs left where all players and officials have to share the one big communal shower, which is the only facilities they have :-(

    It's a problem if the ref is a different sex from the teams, and it's a nightmare when youth teams and adult teams are playing on the same day (or male and female teams on same day), or if the team is a youth team and the referee is an adult , or the team is adult and the referee is 17

    My two higher performing referees are female. This would, indeed, be a problem.

    Mind you, Basingstoke Colts on a Sunday AM had the same issue for me. I just stank in the bar/
