Elite referee joins ColorFlash team
It is with great pleasure that we can announce today the recruitment of former elite FIFA and UEFA referee, Craig Thomson, to the ColorFlash team.
Craig came through the Scottish FA refereeing ranks and took charge of his first top-flight match shortly before his 30th birthday in 2002. He remained as a top-level official in Scotland until his retiral from officiating at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Within a year of graduating at the top level in Scotland, Craig was on the FIFA list and, in an illustrious international career, he officiated at UEFA European Championships Finals and in FIFA World Cup qualifying rounds as well as handling more than a few UEFA Champions League matches. In the domestic context he was the man in the middle at several Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup finals over the years and in addition handled many match-ups between Celtic and Rangers, complemented by his week-to-week league and cup duties.

He remains attached to the SFA as a Referee Observer. Craig has also become a semi-regular contributor to the BBC Radio Scotland football show, Sportsound, in which he puts forward a distinct and refreshing referee's point of view as opposed to the more commonplace ex-footballer's narrative which listeners have become rather accustomed to.

For services to football and to charity Craig was awarded MBE in the UK 2020 New Year Honours List.
Don't do it again son!

Craig joins us as Senior Refereeing Advisor and becomes a member of the new ColorFlash Advisory Board. There will be other prominent names coming to the Advisory Board in the very near future so watch this space.
