Soccer-mad teenager has been confirmed as the world’s youngest female football referee by Guinness World Records.
The 14-year-old from Somerset (UK) received her level nine qualifications from The Football Association on her birthday earlier this year.
Daisy, who supports English Championship side Watford, had to undertake a two-week training course for a total of 16 hours to qualify to take charge of under-11 football matches.
She had to pass a multiple choice exam before taking a practical test that involved analysing a match on DVD.
In her first match as a qualified FA referee, Daisy gave a penalty against a team from her own school.
Speaking to local newspaper, The Bridgewater Mercury Daisy said: “I got into football when I was ten and moved from an all-girls school to a primary school. Then I decided to take up refereeing because I thought it would develop my all-round mentality towards the game and make me a better player.
“My friends are fine with it because they know I am sporty. In fact some are proud of me.”
Daisy, who plays for local side Bishop's Lydeard, says she hopes to become an adult referee and make it a part-time job when she turns 16.
She joins a rank of 25,502 qualified referees in England, only 407 of whom are female.
While Daisy sets a new record for female refs, the record for the youngest ever person to referee a competitive football match is still held by Samuel Keplinger (Germany) who was 9 years 302 days old when he officiated the 0-0 draw between SSV Bobingen and SV Reinhartshausen in Bavaria, Germany on 24 February 2008.
