It’s a proud achievement for the 37 year-old from Stanground who has been refereeing for 22 years.

Hair has spent the last two seasons refereeing at National League level and his promotion was heavily signalled by an appointment to the League’s play-off final between Boreham Wood and Tranmere Rovers at Wembley Stadium last month.

Hair won great praise for issuing a red card for serious foul play in the first minute of that game.
