Men In Black

Premiership official, Chris Foy takes charge of Blackpool`s game against Norwich City tomorrow in the FA Cup 4th round.

The Merseyside based referee has officiated in 14 Premier League fixtures this season, with his biggest coming in the game between Blackburn and Arsenal last week. Yes, the official who bizarrely sent off Gunners captain, Gilberto Silva after a tussle with Lily Savage. The Gooners went on to win the game 2-0 with Thierry Henry scoring a fantastic goal after link up play with Cesc Fabregas.

Foy is no stranger to Bloomfield Road. He took charge of the game against Colchester United last term when we lost in the final minute to a Greg Halford goal and the game ended 2-1. Just to show you how far the team has come since then, here was the team:Pogliacomi ,McGregor ,Butler ,Clarke ,Edwards (Morris ,50 ) ,Wiles ,Southern ,Grayson (Doolan ,70 ) ,Burns ,Vernon (Blinkhorn ,70 ) ,Tommy Wright

Chris Foy is quite conservative with his cards and has produced 78 yellows along with three reds in his 26 outings this season.

With antics likely from Darren Huckerby and co, Foy will have to be on his toes as The Seasiders look to overcome The Canaries.

Be sure to vote him on our sticky thread on the forum after the game tomorrow.
