In the Conference Premier match between Kidderminster and Wrexham this weekend, Wrexham scored a ghost goal when the shot went into the corner of the net, but the referee awarded a goal kick instead of a goal to Wrexham.
The referee and assistant referee didn’t see the goal because the ball had gone through a hole in the net.
Not surprisingly, the Wrexham players protested to the referee and match officials. After six minutes of discussion and consultation, referee Amy Fearn changed her decision and awarded the goal to Wrexham. Kidderminster won the game 3-1.
Hats off to referee Amy Fearn who ultimately got the decision correct. Earlier this season, Fearn became the first female to referee an FA Cup first-round fixture.
