Premiership referee Mr. Howard Webb gets the gig for the 4th round FA Cup tie between the Mutton Molestors from Sheepsville and the Mighty Reds’ of Nottingham.

Mr. Webb hails from sunny South Yorkshire and is one of the most highly rated referees of his time. He is one of the few refs that actually commands a bit of respect and is considered one of the more able officials in the Prem.

So far this season, he’s taken charge of 23 games, in which he’s dished out 81 yellow cards and 5 red. The last time he took control of a game involving Forest, it was the 4-2 home defeat to Portsmouth, way back in 2003. It’s a ral shame we couldn’t get Stuart Attwell for this one, but Ole’ Howie will be a decent second choice.

He’ll be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. M. Mullarkey and Mr. P. J. Kirkup. The 4th official is Mr. S. J. Tanner.
