History will be made on Easter Monday, as Rebecca Welch from Washington, Tyne and Wear becomes the first female referee to be appointed by the EFL. Her debut sees her taking charge of Port Vale’s visit to Harrogate Town in Skybet League 2, which she explains to Mark Clemmit will be a huge milestone in her already impressive career. Clem also links up with Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson live from his garden on a balmy spring evening, and Morecambe’s Derek Adams, who Clem’s promised to buy two packets of Tunnocks caramel wafers if the Shrimps are successful in their promotion push!
