Referee Bio

Jonathan Moss qualified as a referee in 1988 and made his first big strides as an official 11 years later, working his way up the Football League pyramid to the Select Group of referees in 2011.

Moss was an official in the Northern Counties and Northern Premier League between 1999 and 2005.

He was subsequently promoted to the Football League as an assistant referee and was in that role for two years before becoming a referee in 2005.

The West Riding FA official was appointed for his first Premier League match in December 2010, but the fixture between Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa was postponed.

However, he did make his top-flight debut soon after in January 2011, when he oversaw Birmingham City’s 2-1 victory over Blackpool.

The following season, he was promoted to the list of Select Group referees, along with fellow Premier League official Neil Swarbrick.

Moss' most high-profile match came in May 2015 as he officiated Arsenal's 2015 FA Cup Final victory over Aston Villa.
