Pearson, Stacey

Stacey played in midfield for Exeter in 2004/05 and the start of 2005/06.

Stacey left Exeter to play for Yeovil Town, staying their for more than 9 years, which included scoring the first ever goal for Yeovil in the clubs opening fixture in the FAWSL against London Bees in 2014, going on to score a hat trick. 
"STACEY Pearson hit a memorable hat-trick for Yeovil Town Ladies yesterday (Sunday, April 20, 2014) as they gained their first-ever win in the Women’s Super League Two".
Retiring from playing, Stacey hung her boots to focus on her refereeing career.

She tried to get through her playing career without being carded but collected her one yellow in 2012 and agreed that it was a fair booking, "having got her tackle timed all wrong".

A level 5 referee and PE teacher, Stacey went on to officiate in the EFL, rising rapidly through the ranks of the women's and men's game to try and become the first female referee in the Premier League.

She was one of only three English women chosen to attend an intensive course at the UEFA Centre of Refereeing Excellence in Switzerland in  May 2018. At the time Stacey was the only female referee at her level in the South West; nationally, there were 323, of whom ten are women.
