Peter O’Leary

D.O.B. March 3,1972



Secondary school science teacher in Wellington (recently moved from Auckland).



Fishing, traveling, reading and socialising with friends. Watching most sports and in particular live games where the atmosphere is tense and exciting.


Referee History:

Began refereeing in 1994 because the club where I was playing started to develop a “first team is the only team that matters” mentality.” I wanted to be involved with football at a high level and so recognising his playing skills took up refereeing. Was a participant at the School of Excellence held in 1997 in Manukau.



I received a lot of help from John Cameron, Peter Hawes and Derek Lowry in the Waikato. I also went to games at Muir Park to watch top referees and try to pick up any tips and pointers that could help him.


Refereeing Goal:

To become a FIFA Referee. Now that that has been achieved hopefully a FIFA Tournament.


Overseas games:

At OFC Tournaments in American Samoa (U-17), the Cook Islands (U-20) and play off games in New Caledonia (U-17).
