Man in charge of the last game of 2016 will be Mark Heywood from Northwich (not to be confused with the more experienced Mark Haywood from Wakefield). He is in his sixth season as a League referee and has refereed Southend five times before.

Firstly the home 2-1 win over Oxford in 2011/12 with the yellows going 2-1 to us as well (Phillips and Dickenson).

Secondly the 0-0 draw at Torquay towards the end of the same season where they picked up 4 yellows to our one (Mohsni).

More recently and most memorably he did 2012/13's fine away win at Chesterfield in the snow, cautioning only Tomlin for over-celebrating (slightly!).

Next came the home match late 2012/13 against Fleetwood when a very late Corr goal equalised a very early Fleetwood goal - one yellow (Phillips) to their 2.

Finally, in 2013/14, he took charge of the home draw with Wycombe, Corr again on target and Coker our only yellow to their two.

He was also Fourth Official in our match at Bolton this season.

So we have a decent record to maintain with him.

His card count this season is unusually very high with 96 yellows and 3 reds from his 21 matches.

He will be assisted by Paul Kelly from Gillingham and Rob Smith from Letchworth. Robert Hyde from East London will be 4th Official.
