A Wrexham ghost goal was allowed after six minutes of debating by the referee and her assistants. Amy Fearn, the first women who refereed an FA Cup match, initially disallowed the goal and awarded a goal kick. The Wrexham players went mad. After debating six minutes with her assistants, Fearn allowed the goal and Kidderminster Harriers players were angry at her. In the end, that was the right decision.
