13 April 2010 05:08
The 47 year-old, who was fourth official at the 2008 final, said: "To get any appointment from the FA is always a great honour, but this surpasses anything that has happened to me in the past.

"I am happy, not just for my family and friends, but also for the wider referee family. I think the foundation stones for times like this are set over a number of years and I've worked very hard during my career to better myself and to reach this stage. It's a great honour."
