Newbie referees Sunderland visit - Referee
Thursday, 8th Mar 2018 15:46 by Clive Whittingham
A first ever QPR appointment for new Football league referee Robert Jones at Loftus Road this Saturday.
Referee >>> Robert Jones (Merseyside), second season on the Football League list.
Assistants >>> Matt Foley (Hertfordshire) and Adam Matthews (Gloucestershire)
Fourth Official >>> James Linington (Isle of Wight)
First ever QPR appointment.
Jones only joined the Football League list last season after finishing his non-league days with the Conference play-off final at Wembley between Forest Green and Grimsby Town. He booked 122 and sent off four in 41 mostly League One and Two games last season, making a Championship bow at Barnsley v Brentford and then Preston v Rotherham right at the end of the campaign.
He’s had ten Championship fixtures this season, all since November 25, and that includes Sunderland’s 1-0 home defeat to Barnsley on New Year’s Day. He’s shown 96 yellows and seven reds in 34 games so far topped out by the six yellows he showed that day at The Stadium of Light.
Championship >>> Stuart Attwell at Millwall v Brentford sounds adventurous.
League One >>> Lee Probert drops two divisions to keep a watch on Blackburn v Blackpool.
