Match Day Officials v Cheltenham (22/4/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Cheltenham Town this weekend.

Blackpool host Cheltenham Town on Saturday April 22 for the game at Bloomfield Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Robert Jones
Linesmen: Billy Khatib and Helen Byrne
Fourth Official: Paul Marsden

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 118 yellows and four red cards.

His highest card count this season so far was the Walsall v Yeovil Town game where he showed six yellow cards, and he also showed six yellows in the Sutton United v Cheltenham FA Cup clash.

In 2015/16 Jones was on duty in the National League, where he took in 22 matches, showing 64 yellow cards and one red card.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
