Mr. Keith Stroud from sunny Hampshire gets the gig, for the first home League game of the Championship campaign for the Reds’.

This is the first game of the season for Mr. Stroud, who was no stranger to the City Ground last season. He had the privilege of taking charge of 3 Forest home games last year and we generally fared pretty well under his stewardship.

He had a bit of a mare in his first game, the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cardiff. Despite booking 4 Forest players in the Plymouth game, we ran out 2-0 winners. He also took charge of the final game of the season, in which we beat the Saints 3-1.

In 32 games during the last campaign, he dished out a total of 110 yellow cards and 6 red.

He’ll be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. M. Bull and Mr. R. Lewis. The 4th official will be Mr. G. Sutton.
