  1. Ref Watch ..... Two big appointments for Andre Marriner today !

    Select Group referee Andre Marriner gets appointed to referee the EFL Cup Final at Wembley between Man Utd and Southampton and just as he's probably thinking life as a referee can't get much better, he and his team of Assistants land the plum fixture at the New Den on Saturday !!
  2. Ref Watch ...... Peterborough A

    League matches against Peterborough are tied at 19 wins apiece. Saturday gives us the opportunity to edge ahead with our first "double" of the season. The referee is relatively inexperienced in only his second season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from Weston-Super-Mare...

    WEMBLEY Tickets

    Woops! I've posted this on the wrong forum, it should have been on the Away Travel forum. This Wembley fever is a terrible thing well might as well leave it where it is! I'm sure that this has/will be posted or quoted numerous times but I will leave here as a sticky for easy reference...
  4. Ref Watch ....... Exeter A

    Not a lot to say about Saturday's referee. He is first year League referee, Darren Handley from Bolton who made it on to the League list after 6 years of Conference officiating. He is 37 and a PE teacher at Tottington High School. His 25 matches this season have produced a just slightly above...
  5. Ref Watch ....... Wimbledon H

    Continuing our run of decent referees, the man in charge tomorrow is Andy Madley from Ossett in West Yorkshire. He is the brother of Bobby Madley, the SG Premiership referee (who did our game against Chesterfield earlier in the year) and there are plenty who say Andy is the better referee of...
  6. Ref Watch ....... Chesterfield A

    Tomorrow's tricky looking fixture will be refereed by one of the League's newest officials with the man-in-black (or purple, grey or yellow) being Sebastian Stockbridge from Penshaw in Sunderland. This will be his third ever League match. The previous two were Fleetwood 3 v 1 Dagenham (2...

    Mary Tamm RIP

    Just seen the news that Mary Tamm has died at 62. Along with the late Elisabeth Sladen & Katy Manning she was one of my favourite assistants of Dr Who. RIP
  8. Ref Watch ...... Daggers home

    Our first referee of the New Year is David Coote from Winthorpe near Newark. He is a second year referee and things have been pretty mixed for him. He works for the Nottinghamshire FA as their Referees' Development Officer (which won't harm his refereeing career!). He has refereed three...
  9. Ref Watch ...... youths

    Tonight's match against Brentford will be refereed by Ben Wright. assistants are Alasdair King and Jeff Lengthorn. Never heard of any of them !
  10. Ref Watch ........ Swindon away

    Interesting (well, slightly) referee appointment for our visit to the Paolo di Canio circus on Saturday. Man in charge, Dean Mohareb from Stockport, is in his first season as a League referee. The former primary schoolteacher has moved swiftly through the refereeing ranks and he won't have been...

    Teaching Assistants - no good!

    Apparently Teaching assistants are a waste of time and teaching on the cheap! Teaching assistants 'do not help improve grades', report into Pupil Premium spending finds Teaching assistants have 'no effect' on improving grades, an influential report has suggested. A study into how best to...
  12. Ref Watch ..... Port Vale away

    Saturday's referee is Rob Shoebridge from Ripley, Derbyshire, in his 6th season as a Football League referee. His career seemed to be developing nicely until a couple of years ago when he was responsible for one of the worst decisions in the history of refereeing - right up there with Attwell's...
  13. Ref Watch ...... vs Hereford

    As we go for our tenth straight League win against Hereford, the man in charge is newly promoted Carl Berry from Cheam in Surrey. It is not, however, his first League match as he had a couple of "trial" matches last season; both were home wins. His last appearance at Roots Hall was running one...
  14. Ref Watch .... Stevenage

    Will we have a Good Ref for Good Friday? In the middle will be David Coote from Winthorpe near Newark. He is a first year referee and things have been pretty mixed for him. His 24 games as a Football League referee have produced a slightly above average 78 yellows, but he has yet to show a red...
  15. Ref Watch Just for the record ...

    ..... the refwatch I attempted to post yesterday! Unusually, the match official is not the one who called off the original game (Carl Boyeson). The man in charge is David Webb (no, not that David Webb) from County Durham. In his third season, he is quite highly rated as one of the more...
  16. Ref Watch ..... Gillingham (make or break)

    The referee for tomorrow evening's match was to have been the quite highly rated James Linington from the Isle of Wight, but it will now be a first year referee Brendan Malone from Salisbury making his Roots Hall debut. This will be his second Southend match, having previously refereed the...
  17. Ref Watch Shrimps vs Shrimpers

    The man in charge of our first ever match away to Morecambe is Chris Sarginson from Staffordshire. He is a thrd year referee who will be refereeing his fourth Southend match and his second of the season. His last Southend match was on New Year's Day at Oxford, which I didn't see but as we won...
  18. Ref Watch .... Barnet

    The original appointee was Simon Hooper, but that has now been changed. Man in charge tonight is Dave Phillips from Sussex, refereeing his fifth Southend match. First was Huddersfield at home two years ago (lost 1-0), second was away ay Yeovil last year (lost again, sent off Morrison) and then...
  19. Ref Watch ...... Chesterfield H

    Saturday's match against Chesterfield sees 4th year referee, Roger East from Salisbury, in charge and making his second visit of the season. He achieved some success as an Assistant Referee being appointed to the 2004 Cup Final and a couple of playoff finals. Wasn't uniformly popular...
  20. Ref Watch ...... Festive Cards

    Festive cards will not be in short supply if Boxing Day referee, Darren Deadman's last appearance at Roots Hall is anything to go by. Deadman, a civil servant from Cheshunt, showed 9 yellow cards in a staggering display of incompetence last season at home to Franchise FC. As it happens, we...
