Jawahir Roble

Referee, United Kingdom

In 2013, she obtained a £300 grant, and managed to involve Ciara Allan, her local (Middlesex) county FA women and girls football development officer. In September 2013, Allen launched the Middlesex FA Women’s League with a new Desi division for girls. In return for refereeing games every week, Middlesex FA funded Roble’s formal referee training.

In 2017, she was one of eleven award winners at the Respect Awards, and collected the Match Official prize. Roble’s award was in recognition of her volunteering work for the education charity Football Beyond Borders (FFB) and with the Middlesex FA, coaching FFB’s first women’s team, as well as for achieving a Level Six refereeing qualification. She is an FA Youth Leader.
