Scottish FA official Kylie Cockburn has been selected as one of the 48 assistant referees that will officiate at next summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

Announced by FIFA earlier this week, it has been confirmed that Cockburn will be one of the 18-strong assistant referee delegation from UEFA nations, and will travel to France for her first senior FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The announcement caps off a landmark year for Cockburn, who was recently involved at the FIFA Women’s Under-17 World Cup in Uruguay.

The Scottish FA official was one of the assistant referees for the third-place playoff between Canada and New Zealand, with German referee Riem Hussein taking charge of the fixture.
