KIDS ARE ALRIGHT FINALIST 007: Megan Fidler, 15, from Whittlesey

REFEREE Megan was named as the second monthly winner after judges called her an inspiration for her contributions to youth football in Fenland.

The teenager has refereed more than 100 games of junior football, giving up countless weekends in order to officiate the beautiful game.

Judge Tali Iserles said in February: “Megan’s refereed at over 100 games of youth football and is pursuing her dream of becoming a professional ref.

“She is an inspiration to women and girls everywhere in what is very much still a male-dominated sport. Way to go Megan!”
