Thread: ..... Walsall H

  
  1. #1

    Ref ..... Walsall H

    For the second time in five days, our referee will be an official in his first season as a Football League referee, refereeing his first Southend match.

    Robert Jones from Liverpool is the man in charge on Saturday. He has spent the previous two seasons refereeing at Conference level and also officiating in something called the Women's Super League.

    He also refereed the Conference Playoff decider between Forest Green and Grimsby rather well.

    This season he's refereed 33 matches with slightly more League Two than League One, showing a very average 103 yellows and 4 reds. Last Saturday he awarded visitors Cambridge two penalties and sent off a home player at Carlisle.

    Assistants are Louis Marks, previously from Waterlooville but now employed as a manager by Bedford FA and Stephen Finch from Southampton. One time paying customer at Roots Hall, Rob Whitton from Chelmsford, stands by as Fourth Official.

    given the fourth official, and far be it from me to wish injury on somebody, but I do hope one of them gets injured!

    What made you draw that inference ?

    Just because one might have little knowledge (and even less interest) in women's football, doesn't make one sexist.

    To quote Ronnie Barker "I played in a mixed sex football match. I scored a hat-trick - once on the pitch and twice in the shower!"

    I can't remember a ref having a better game for a very long time. I don't remember once thinking the ref got something wrong. He played the advantage then pulled play back if the advantage went nowhere. Booked Inniss about 5 mins after his poor tackle because he played the advantage and let the game flow. 10/10 from me

    Think the standard of referees has been appalling this season but todays ref was a breath of fresh air.let the game flow as much as he could and got the decision s right.i can't believe I'm praising the man in the middle ��

    I know they've had little to beat of late, but I thought the team of officials today were the best I've seen at Roots Hall for a very long while.

    Agreed. He was excellent. Heard a number of people around me saying the same thing. Didn't get a decision wrong

    1. He was a good ref, it is now it seems the norm to be discussing the decision making BUT not today, the game moved along and the ref needs to be recognised as having a very good game.
