'I hid my football boots from my parents'

In 2004, JJ Roble's family fled Somalia and ended up living in the shadow of Wembley Stadium.

She's now the first black, female, Muslim, hijab-wearing referee in the UK.

Her aim is to inspire more women into playing football and to get the England ladies to the top of their game.

Produced by BBC's The One Show.
