Ref Watch Refwatch ........... York (A)

League matches against York started when the Divisions Three North and South were disbanded and since then we’ve played them 46 times. We’ve won 19 of those to York’s 15 with 12 draws. Among the more memorable of the scorelines was the 4-4 draw at Roots Hall some 25 years ago. Last season we did a 2-0 double over them before losing by the same score in the Trophy. Fondly recall the Saturday evening matches at Bootham Crescent in the late 60s offering a chance to catch another match in the afternoon.

Saturday’s referee is another of the recently promoted officials, shaven-headed Paul Cooper from Easington in Durham, who is taking the National League by storm, seemingly waging a one-man war against professional footballers. He has done just three NL matches during which he has shown his yellow card 25 times, three of which were accompanied by a red for the second yellow. In addition, there has been a further straight red.

As well as those three matches, he has done three PL2 development U21 matches. These matches tend to be less intense but still he managed to show a further 20 yellows, one followed by a red.

Older readers may remember goalkeeper Paul Cooper who had an extraordinary record with penalties, saving 13 out of the 17 he faced from 1978 to 1980. Saturday’s Paul Cooper prefers awarding them and pointed to the spot 4 times in his last two matches - although his Assistant put him right on one of them and he rescinded it.

When not showing cards, he is a Police Officer and Dog Instructor with the Durham Police Force.

Assisting will be Stuart Richardson from Nottingham and Timothy Walker from Derby. Fourth Official is Sam Ross, also from Durham and also a Police Officer.
 
Must be something in the name. Yet another Paul Cooper playing in Scotland was shown the red card a record six times in one match with continuing misbehaviour after being sent off.
 
could be a very interesting game me thinks. Hopefully we will still have 11 players after this game 4 red cards and we doomed .
rest any of our players who are just 1 yellow card away from suspension lol
