Jeff Winter

Former Premier League Referee

  • Highly Recommended
  • Viewed & Approved
  • UK Nationwide
Excellent speaker who gives an entertaining and informative speech based on his highly succesful refereeing career

Jeff Winter was a regular Premiership referee for over seven seasons, arriving in the top flight after a number of years as one of the country's top linesmen. He spent six seasons as a Football League referee's assistant, before graduating to gain full control of matches.
Previously a financial services advisor by trade, Jeff’s career highlights so far have been taking charge of a women's FA Cup final, and being fourth official in the 1989 FA Cup Final between Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton, before his swansong – the FA Cup Final 2004 – a match which can only be officiated on one occasion in a referee’s career.

Jeff Winter comes from Stockton-on-Tees and is one of the best-respected referees within the English Premier League, having a great rapport with both players and supporters alike.

His good humour is an evident and noted feature of any Premier League game that he referees.
