England will referee Sunderland cup tie
Tonight’s League Cup tie against Sunderland will be refereed by Barnsley based referee Darren England who will be taking charge of a Burnley game for the first ever time.
He’d been refereeing for almost two years before he got a Championship game. He refereed the Wolves v Preston game in May 2017 and that summer was elevated to Select Group 2 and for the last two seasons has officiated mainly in the Championship.
Besides refereeing the Wycombe v Reading game in the last round of the League Cup, he’s also refereed three Championship games this season. There have been just five yellow cards in the four games with one of those going to the home team and four to away team players.
The assistant referees tonight are Philip Dermott and Steven Meredith. The fourth official is James Bell from Sheffield. He’s a referee development officer for the West Riding County Football Association and has refereed three times in the National League during this month.Follow UpTheClarets:
