A Young Soccer Fan Is Overjoyed When She Sees A Female Referee In Action

Her enthusiasm earned her an adorable return trip to watch a women’s match from the field.

When Twitter user Hullablue took in a soccer match with his young daughter, he expected her to find some inspiration from the players on the field but was shocked to find that her attention and ambition lay elsewhere once they arrived. Standing next to the pitch at a semi-pro match near Leeds, England, the young girl remained singularly focused not on the players but on an assistant referee standing nearby.

Her dad, Nathan, caught a snapshot of 4-year-old Clara conversing with the female referee, enthralled by her presence and later heartened by learning that she too could become a referee even when the players are men.


The telling photo moved many Twitter users to voice their support of not only Clara’s aspirations, but also the growing presence of women on the pitch, both as players and referees.

Another group used the viral photo to promote referee recruitment across gender lines.

Upon learning of Clara’s enthusiasm, the Leeds United women’s team gave the youngster VIP treatment as she stood on the pitch to take in Sunday’s game alongside a female assistant referee.

A ref from the later match took to Twitter to share how special her reaction was to the crew working the game that day, men and women alike.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
