For the second match running the original appointee has been changed. Chris Sarginson is off the match and instead we have the return of Keith Hill from Hertfordshire. He was the FA's Regional Referees Manager for the East of England but has spent the best part of the last two years in Japan on some refereeing mission.

He is now back and has resumed his Football League career.

He has been refereeing since he was fourteen. Promoted to the National List of Assistant referees in 1994 and served for a further three seasons as a SG assistant referee before being promoted to the Referees List in 1998. His career appointments include refereeing a semi-final of the FA Trophy, and being appointed as 4th Official on the 2002 Game of Unity in Kabul.

He is in his 14th season and is, in my opinion, way past his best (which wasn't very good anyway). I'm sure his previous position has much to do with his extended run on the list as better officials seem to have been culled during this time. I do sometimes wonder if he benefits from positive discrimination.

This will be his 19th League and Cup match in charge of Southend and his 16th home game. By and large, we have done quite well with him in charge winning far more than losing. His matches have generally been littered with pickiness, inconsistency and plenty of cards, some justified. He is more than capable of whistling any football match to death. One can only hope he has chilled out a bit during his time in Japan.

His last visit to Roots Hall was the home win against Oxford the season before last. Three yellows apiece and a red for them.

Before that it was the 1-0 home defeat (penalty) by Oldham the season before that. Before that the rearranged match against Scunthorpe; and just previous to that a couple of weeks earlier when he called off the same match seconds before the scheduled kick off.

He also did Yeovil away that season.

"Highlights" of his Southend matches: the home defeat by Kingstonian in the Cup (Roget off), home win over Darlington (Searle off), the more recent away defeat at Palace (one of his more ok games) and the ever so forgetable 0-0 draw at Oxford in the Cup.

His card count is invariably high; early days this season but his three matches to date have produced 11 yellows and one red.

This is a man who has not been able to control a football league match without showing a card for 6 years !!

Assistants are regular visitors: the short, bald man from Colchester John Magill and from a little further up the A12 Adrian Sannerude from Lowestoft. Fourth official is ex-League referee Graham Horwood from Luton.

Sounds an ideal time for the return of Bilel.
