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

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

Hartlepool United host Barnet on Saturday April 22 for the game at Victoria Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Trevor Kettle
Linesmen: Christopher Ward and Danny Markham
Fourth Official: Garreth Rhodes

Match Day referee Kettle has taken in 33 games so far in the 2016/17 season, with a return of 134 yellow cards and six red cards.

This season he was most card happy in the match between Leyton Orient and Crawley Town where he showed ten yellow cards.

He took in 31 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 108 yellow cards and ten red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Preston North End and Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 26 with a total of six yellows being shown plus two reds. He also showed seven yellow cards in the Wimbledon v Morecambe game in October and backed that up in November with five yellows and two red in the match between Barnet and Mansfield.

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