Mr. Mark Haywood from West Yorkshire gets the gig for the weekend game at the City Ground with Watford.

So far this season he’s taken charge of two games, in which he’s booked 2 and sent off 2. Last season in 35 games he dished out 71 yellow and 3 red cards. Clearly not one for the paper work.

The last time he had the privilege of taking charge of a game involving the Reds’, was last years home encounter with Oldham. On a thoroughly dull and uneventful Tuesday night, Mr. Haywood witnessed an insipid 0-0 draw that saw both cards stay firmly in his pocket.

Mr. Haywood will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. P. E. Curry and Mr. G. S. Stretton. The 4th official will be Mr. P. W. Barnes.
