One of New South Wales’ leading female officials Katie Patterson will this Sunday officiate the 2019 TAFE NSW Waratah Cup Final clash between the Marconi Stallions and Sydney United 58 to be held at Lily Homes Stadium (2:30pm kick-off).
The 29-year-old, who has been a regular fixture officiating in the National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s and Women’s top tier competitions in recent seasons as well as the Hyundai A-League and W-League, will be at the forefront at Lily Homes Stadium leading the charge in running the grand finale.
Patterson rose to fame in September 2015 when she became the first female referee to officiate an A-League team in a competitive match when she took charge of the FFA Cup tie between Rockdale City Suns and Melbourne Victory at Jubilee Oval.
Having commenced her refereeing career in the Illawarra before moving to the St George Referees Association as well as the NSW State League Football Referees Branch, Patterson will be eagerly looking forward to what will be a high quality match between two evenly matched teams.
Patterson will be assisted on Sunday by leading Football NSW assistant-referees Joon Park and Scott Edeling with Stephen Lucas announced as the fourth official.
